Information Technology Services - Dr. Susan Dunnavant, Acting Chief Information Officer
Last Revised: 11/09/2016
Title: Vendor Network Access Policy
Applicable: Staff, Third-Party Vendors
Contacts: IT Service Center ext. 3277
Background: The University has vendors that wish to support devices on the campus network from off campus. In order to properly secure and protect the campus network, the University has established a secure remote access system for vendors that have a contractual relationship with the university.
Policy: Vendor access to the Furman University campus network, servers, and devices on the campus network from off campus, is only available to vendors with a contractual relationship with Furman University.
Vendor remote access to devices on the Furman data network is only available through the Furman secure remote support system.
Information Technology Services will provide terms for Furman network access as a contract addendum to the vendor's contract with the University.
- If a vendor requires network access for a vendor managed device, the vendor may choose to use the Furman network, or cellular data service; vendor services may not be accessible to both. The vendor will be responsible for all cellular data costs and support.
Exceptions to the network access terms must be approved by the Chief Information Officer.
