Virtual Private Network (VPN) technology provides secure remote access and secure data transmission between devices that are not connected to the University wired or wireless campus networks and University systems. The the Palo Alto GlobalProtect software that you can install on your computer makes it seem as if it is on the campus network by setting up a tunnel which encrypts all traffic between your computer and the University firewall.

The University of Windsor has implemented a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) system that allows people to connect to centrally managed desktops. These Windows 10 desktops have software pre-loaded and they can be accessed from a variety of devices including: Windows PC's, macOS computers, Linux workstations, and Android and Apple tablets.

To support University of Windsor website, I.T. Services maintains a content management system (CMS) powered by Drupal. A CMS is a computer application that allows publishing, editing, modifying, organizing, deleting, and maintaining content from a central interface.

Domain Name Services (DNS) is the Internet's equivalent of a phone book. DNS servers maintain a directory of domain names (example: uwindsor.ca) and translate them to Internet Protocol (IP) addresses (example: 137.207.71.196). This is necessary because, although domain names are easy for people to remember, computers or machines, access websites based on IP addresses. The Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is a network protocol used to assign IP addresses and provide configuration information to devices such as servers, desktops, or mobile devices, so they can communicate on a network using the Internet Protocol (IP). All IP addresses are dynamically allocated by our DHCP servers on both wireless and wired networks
