New Anti-Malware Software For University Macs

Wednesday, February 22, 2017 - 1:13pm

Faculty and Staff,

Next Monday (02/27), ITS will be deploying new anti-malware software for all University Apple laptops and desktops systems.

As the market share of Apple systems have grown, so too has the threat of malicious software for macOS systems. This new software will help ensure that both University PCs and Macs have equivalent protection against these threats.

The software that is being deployed is System Center Endpoint Protection (SCEP), Microsoft's enterprise anti-malware solution. The software will install automatically but will not become fully active until you reboot your machine.

If you have questions regarding this software, contact the Help Desk at 262-6266.
