Faculty/Staff: Goodbye Symantec, Hello Cisco AMP!

ITS would like to announce that we’re moving from our current anti-virus software (Symantec Endpoint Protection) and replacing it with a next-generation anti-virus software that prevents, detects, and responds to advanced threats. We are pleased to introduce Cisco AMP for Endpoints, our new security solution!

Faculty and Staff computers operating on Windows will have the AMP for Endpoints software installed and Symantec uninstalled during the weekly maintenance windows. Mac devices will be updated during a scheduled deployment, and users will be notified of the changes before they occur. ITS expects to make these changes before the end of the semester, so it is critically important that you allow your computer to receive the updates.

Contact ITS at helpdesk@etown.edu if you have any questions or concerns about the software or the process. Thanks for your continued assistance in maintaining the health of the E-town network!
