VP Evolution Project enables Entra MFA for VIP/ESS access on April 3

Project reduces risk, and improves the user and employee experience.

The VIP Evolution project is a multi-year project, with dedicated resources from Information Services and Technology (IST), Human Resources and Payroll, led by a project board of leaders from across the UM community. The project’s focus is leveraging VIP functionality, reducing risk, and improving the user and employee experience.

The project’s next implementation prioritizes the system’s security. On April 3, 2024, the VIP Evolution project will enable Entra MFA (multi-factor authentication) for VIP/ESS. Multi-factor authentication is a crucial tool in safeguarding the university’s sensitive data.

Entra MFA’s successful integration into numerous UM systems makes its extension to VIP/ESS an instrumental stride in fortifying data security.
