CrowdStrike Falcon (required):

Campus VPN
The Cisco AnyConnect VPN enables access to resources that are restricted to the campus network.

Many software companies are making special pricing (sometimes free) available to students for a limited time use via the Webstore. Visit to find the current list of offers. Some interesting specials include: Adobe Creative Cloud, Stata, SPSS, MATLAB, and others.
