Firewall upgrade to be rescheduled

Submitted by Information Technology Services

In the early morning of Aug. 10, Information Technology Services began the process of upgrading K-State's firewalls. Unfortunately, there were issues and the implementation was unsuccessful.

Around 5 a.m. Aug. 10, Information Technology Services began restoring services to the prior state; however, the process took longer than expected. Most services were restored by 12:30 p.m. 

This firewall upgrade is very important to enhance the security of the K-State network and will be rescheduled. The university community will be notified in advance of the upgrade.

Information Technology Services apologizes for the disruption in service.
