OneDrive for Business
OneDrive for Business is now available to faculty, staff, and students through UD’s Office 365 (O365) subscription. The cloud-based OneDrive offers 5TB to store and share your files with other UD account holders who use Office 365. OneDrive also features native app editing, live concurrent editing, and AutoSave with versioning.
You can create a local copy of the contents of your OneDrive on your computer’s hard drive in a folder you choose. You also can specify folders on your hard drive to synchronize with OneDrive.
Before you use OneDrive’s features, you will need to configure Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA). Multi-Factor Authentication is similar to the two-factor authentication (2FA) that you now use to access UD resources; however, it is a separate system with a different range of options. If you have questions about OneDrive or configuring MFA, contact OET.
Exchange Clients to Migrate to Exchange Online
If you use Exchange for email, you will have your Exchange account migrated to Exchange Online within the next few months. We will notify CEHD Exchange users when their accounts will move. This migration is required to enhance the security of your Exchange account and the security of University and other information entrusted to your care.
The best protection for your accounts and your data is to require additional authentication beyond your account’s password. The University’s two-factor authentication (2FA) protects accounts and information by requiring you to log in through the UD Central Authentication System (CAS). That protection is not available with IT’s current Exchange implementation.
The best way to add security for your UD Exchange account is to migrate it to Exchange Online and to use Microsoft Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) to protect your account and information. To prepare for the migration, we recommend that you configure MFA now. You can use either Google Authenticator (for Android or Apple iOS) or Microsoft Authenticator (for Android or Apple iOS) to configure MFA.
Once your account has been migrated and you have set up all your devices to access Exchange Online, you will be able to use Outlook, calendaring, and other Exchange apps as you always have.
