There are a couple of methods that can be used to access the University ERP systems. When accessing wirelessly it is essential that transmitted data is protected by secure connections:
- MySAU Portal – when accessing information through the portal via a web browser, a SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) certificate is used to establish an encrypted link.
- SkyLite – when accessing using this Jenzabar client software on-campus, the software session used must be configured using the Secure Shell (SSH) protocol to ensure a secure link/tunnel.
When using SkyLite from off-campus, the user must use our VPN (virtual private network) and establish a secure connection before executing SkyLite since SSH is not allowed remotely.
Information Technology Services is responsible for installing the SkyLite software on systems needing it.
