Security Enclave

Beginning with Counseling Services and Fiscal Affairs, ITS has started implementing a system-wide initiative to improve security by creating a security enclave in which users of Personally Identifiable Information (PII) will operate in special virtual environment that restricts access and use to predefined websites and applications that are isolated from non-secure information and use.  Upcoming offices include Human Resources, Financial Aid, and Admissions.  The project is scheduled to be fully completed by the end of summer 2019.

Security Enclave

The CSCU system has contracted with Presidio to build out a Citrix based security enclave for protecting private or proprietary information (PPI). Applications or tasks that manage information such as social security numbers, bank routing data, or health care records going forward will be managed inside of this new environment. Access will be via Citrix Xenapp application virtualization, with no data ever leaving the environment.

Work on the Eastern implementation has already begun. ITS estimates the first phase of the project (key administrative offices that house most of the institution’s PPI data) will be completed within the next 12-18 months
