2-Factor Authentication (2FA) and Banner, HRFE, and PARIS Update

In Fall, 2017, we are implementing 2-Factor authentication (2FA) for 3 heavily utilized applications;  Banner administrative forms, HR Front End (HRFE), and Payroll Adjustment Request Interface System (PARIS) for both on and off campus computers. 2FA provides protection for sensitive data by requiring something you know (your NetID and password) and something you have (your mobile device) to access Banner forms, HRFE and PARIS. These applications join NESSIE pin-protected data (e.g. Direct Deposit) and 2016 Tax Documents that already use 2FA for off-campus access. Banner is going live on September 24; HRFE and PARIS on October 15. For more information about 2FA go to

Security Reminder

They will work with you and other technical staff to assist you.
