Two-Factor Authentication Required June 3

For Current Faculty, Staff, and Wright State Student Employees

*Those with an affiliation of Emeritus Faculty only are not required to sign up for this service. If you have questions about your current status at the University, contact the CaTS Help Desk at (937) 775-4827.*

*Beginning June 3rd, 2019, CaTS began rolling out Duo two-factor authentication to all current faculty and staff.*

What Are We Doing?
CaTS will now be requiring two-factor authentication for Wright State current faculty, staff, and delegated accounts from off campus, wireless, and VPN connections when accessing services such as WINGS, Office 365, ServiceNow, and more. CaTS announced and made available two-factor authentication in March 2018 to Wright State faculty, staff, and delegated account users as an optional service through Duo Mobile. Utilizing two-factor authentication will now be required to further the University's single sign-on capabilities, online security, and to reduce the number of credentials needed to access Wright State systems and services. As an added benefit, Campus 'w' account passwords will never expire for those individuals utilizing two-factor authentication, unless there is evidence the account password has been compromised.

When Will This Happen?
June 3rd, 2019

What Actions Do I Take Now?
If you have previously enrolled in two-factor authentication via Duo you do not need to do anything. If you have not enrolled, you are encouraged to do so as soon as possible, but prior to June 3rd to avoid any disruption to signing in to online campus services.

Is Training Available?
CaTS will be offering drop-in training sessions covering two-factor authentication. Training dates can be found at
