SAFE Desktop Update

Dear SAFE User Community:

I wanted to share some good news with you: beginning Monday, December 3, when you log in to the SAFE desktop, you will connect to an upgraded desktop with 16 GB of memory (RAM) and 6  processors (CPU). The current hardware supports 8 GB of RAM and 4 CPUs.

We value your input and constructive feedback. If you have any issues with using the SAFE desktop or with the applications provisioned with the desktop, please call the IT Help Desk at 410-955-HELP (4357) so that a support ticket can be logged and escalated to the correct team.

Coming soon: a SAFE desktop web site, including FAQs, a discussion forum, and video tutorials.

Thank you for your continued support of this secure analytic platform!  For questions, feel free to email me at
