Information Security Tools

Here are tools that we reccomend to have a safe online experiance and stay protected.


Want an extra layer of security? 2-Step Verification is what you need!


Be safe and check for sensitive data on your device.


Connect to a secure campus connection (Virtual Private Network)


2-Step Verification (2-factor authentication or 2fa) adds a second layer of security to your FresnoState account, keeping your account secure even if your password is compromised. Verifying your identity using a second factor such as your desk phone, mobile device, or token prevents anyone but you from logging in even if your password is compromised.

Spirion is a software tool that will search for Level 1 data that includes social security numbers, passport numbers, driver’s license numbers, bank account and credit card numbers and health information in files stored on university computers.

VPN (Viirtual Private Network)

Fresno State's VPN creates a safe and encrypted connection that allows employees to safely send information back and forth from the campus and their remote location. Depending on the speed of your remote location, some activities may be slower than when you are physically on campus.
