Updated Cybersecurity Policy for all Mount Sinai Health System Employees

As of October 3rd, 2017 (mountsinai.org email accounts) and October 17th, 2017 (mssm.edu email accounts), all users accessing the URL: mail.mssm.edu or webmail.mountsinai.org will have to first connect over a Virtual Private Network (VPN). Additionally, any user that accesses their email over a mobile device will have to install the AirWatch and activate the application on their mobile device.

For webmail access only, you do NOT have to submit a Sailpoint request for VPN.

What is a Virtual Private Network (VPN)?

A VPN is a program that allows your desktop or laptop computer to access the internet as if it was inside one of our campus buildings. This helps ensure that you can benefit from our security policies, wherever you are!

All remote users must register for a two factor security token.

Emergency Email Access

Use the link for Temporary Email Access below if you are away from Mount Sinai Health System and do not yet have a two factor security token.

When you return to campus, follow the instructions located at itsecurity.mssm.edu and complete the VPN setup in order to retain remote email access.
