Several years ago, Ohio State formed contracted with Box.com for a cloud storage and collaboration solution. Once we added some security and set up unlimited storage, we launched the BuckeyeBox for all Ohio State users
Unlimited Storage: What You Need to Know
The IT Service Desk is available at the BuckeyeBar during business hours and by phone at 614-688-4357 (HELP) around the clock to help you solve technology problems. At the beginning of the term we get numerous requests for password resets. We are here to help if you need it, but often users can fix problems more quickly on their own if they have the correct information or visit our self-service site.
Microsoft is making changes over the next several months that will affect users that access Outlook on the Web (OWA). Here's a summary:
OCIO released a new mobile email solution, Outlook Mobile for iOS and Android, on Friday, June 21. This mobile application provides security protections, while smoothly integrating with Microsoft Office 365 applications.
Whether you’re looking for expert help or gearing up to fix the problem yourself, the IT Self Service site -- go.osu.edu/it -- has everything you need to access the right technology resources. The new page is visually updated and new features to help you find things more easily.
The new site was built after extensive research and useful feedback from users like you. On the home page you will find our most popular features:
BuckeyePass is Ohio State’s method of multi-factor authentication. This security significantly decreases your risk of being a victim of hacking and identity theft. Having BuckeyePass means cybercriminals now need to have two different items to access your information—something you know (your password) and something you have (like your smartphone).
It’s tax time again. Millions of Americans are filing for returns and making plans for how to use the money. Attackers have other ideas for that tax return.
TurboTax promotes itself as the number one, best-selling tax preparation software. No doubt they hold credentials belonging to millions of Americans who have used them for their taxes. Now, officials report an attacker obtained tax return data through a credential stuffing hack on their platform.
If you have group affiliations that allow you to access specific university applications, you’ll benefit from our new Self-Service feature. Self-Service will simplify and speed up the process for requesting access to new groups or removal from a group.
The university provides access to certain applications based upon your group affiliation. Applications include things like motor pool access, JAMF administration, Citrix XenApp, EDM, WOSU allegiance application, childcare applications and many others.
Office 365 is a versatile product, and we are continually reviewing its applications to determine which ones meet our security requirements. We recently enabled enabling Yammer, To-Do, Whiteboard and FindTime for all students and university employees (excluding Med Center, as they have different security requirements). To access these new tools, visit http://office365.osu.edu/.
