MyISU Cloud is a secure, single sign on product that went into service at the university in January, 2013. MyISU Cloud is a customizable graphic dashboard, where, once logged in, users can select from available products and services and get instant access without having to login again. It is supported in multiple browsers and operating systems.
Several products are currently available to users through MyISU Cloud, such as: Sycamores E-mail, Exchange E-mail, and MyISU, with more coming on line monthly. New services will be added as testing proves that OIT can ensure that user experience is not adversely affected. Users can add some third party web applications, including social media services.
MyISU Cloud is available on and off campus, on PC’s and Macs. Most applications are available to users from both locations.
