ITS added Duo multifactor authentication protection to the GlobalProtect VPN to add another layer of security to Colgate's data.


The sign-in page is powered by Microsoft which Colgate is using increasingly for authentication to services.

You do not need to make any changes to your environment.  You should familiarize yourself with the new log-in process (using your full email address) and expect the log-in process to include Duo MFA.
