At MD Anderson, we give our employees access to institutional email and the MD Anderson virtual private network to ensure their ability to be productive away from the office.
Outlook Web Access
Employees can access their Outlook email accounts one of two ways:
- Read-only access to Outlook. This provides read-only access and lets you view your email without logging into our virtual private network.
- Full access to Outlook. This provides full access and requires you to be connected to MD Anderson's network, either by being on campus or by being connected through our virtual private network.
Virtual Private Network (VPN) Access
There are two VPN methods available to MD Anderson employees:
- Limited VPN Access. Visit mdavpn.mdanderson.org. Through this site, you can gain access to your MD Anderson email account, the MD Anderson Intranet site and various clinical tools. It does not provide MD Anderson network connection to applications such as remote desktop.
- Full VPN Access. Use the AnyConnect VPN client to gain full MD Anderson network access including remote desktop and shared drive access. For security, you must verify your identity with a second pass code through an application on your mobile phone.
