Happy Summer! Becker College will be closed on Fridays, beginning June 22 until August 10.

Connecting to the Becker Network

On any given day, we see approximately 6,000 devices on the Becker network; this includes employee computers, lab computers, student computers, various game consoles, tablets and smart phones. We use ClearPass OnGuard to help us identify infected computers and malicious activity so we can keep the networks secure for everyone; we use Sophos for real-time protection to prevent both students and employees from getting infected with the malware and viruses that could bring down the network.
