ZScaler and Use of Library Resources
Posted On: Wednesday, July 27, 2022 - 16:06 by Beverly Murphy

ZScaler, an Internet and Web gateway security tool, is being implemented across Duke Health. Users have reported barriers to accessing Library resources when ZScaler is running on their Duke computers. For example, it may appear that Duke does not have access to a resource to which we subscribe.

DHTS has implemented a strategy to allow access to Library resources while using ZScaler. However, if you are having issues getting access, please submit a ticket to us via our Report an Access Issue Form.
