What is it?

This project will migrate approximately 250 unprotected VLANs (“virtual local area networks”) to campus enterprise firewalls.

Why are we doing it?

Migrating these VLANs will prevent attacks and also limit the scope of attacks across the University. Onboarding the rest of campus will significantly expand the range and depth of the University’s defenses. It will also give ITS unprecedented awareness of which mission-critical systems we need to protect.

How does this impact our UNC community?
