Unify API transition

The existing Unify API will begin to transition to the new CourseLeaf API on Friday, July 01, 2016 at 10:00AM. CCIT has worked with the CourseLeaf team to develop a backwards compatible API that will replace the existing Unify API. To use it, you can replace the current domain, apps.college.columbia.edu, with a CourseLeaf domain.

New Wildfire Launch

CCIT is pleased to announce the launch of a completely redesigned version of Wildfire on Wednesday, October 28, 2015. There are many enhancements, but the most noteworthy are:

USB Flash Drives: Encryption Guidelines

Sometimes it is handy to save files to a USB flash drive (aka "USB key", "thumbdrive," or "jumpdrive"). It can get tricky, however, when transferring files from a Columbia College computer encrypted with BitLocker or GuardianEdge.

Public Cloud Storage: Guide and Policy

Many people use public cloud storage, such as Dropbox, Google Docs, and Google Drive, for storing personal files.  While these cloud-based products and services are useful, there are related privacy and security concerns. For users of the College computing environment, it is necessary to consider appropriate usage.

Wildfire and Unify No Longer Publicly Available Off Campus

Wildfire and Unify are no longer available off campus. You will need to access them through TS or the VPN when you are not on campus.
