The Safe Connect Policy Key is part of BHSU's effort to help you keep your computers as free as possible from viruses, spyware, and operating system security holes. Machines protected in this way generally perform much better and require much less downtime due to damage caused by malicious software.
Also, the Safe Connect Policy Key can help to ensure that the average user has the fastest possible browsing experience while connected to the BHSU network. It does this by:
- Ensuring that communication from malicious software does not flood the School's Internet connection, resulting in much slower connections for legitimate users.
- Restricting certain applications that would otherwise consume an unfairly large share of the School's bandwidth, again resulting in a slower connection for the majority of users.
If you have any questions, please contact the BHSU Help Desk at 605.642.6580 or BHSUHelpDesk@BHSU.edu.
