Information Services to replace end point security for DePaul computers

As part of Information Services' efforts to improve security of the university’s computing assets and data, IS will roll out an improved antivirus solution to all DePaul owned computers. The new solution is designed to provide considerably improved protection to campus computers, along with improved performance over the current antivirus solution, McAfee. IS will begin the roll out across campus this week, and continue the updates over a two month period.  

For Windows users, this update will run as a background process without requiring any user interaction, so the change should be transparent for users. Mac users will see a pop up window which will guide them to complete the process. 

As noted in a November announcement,​ Apple users must update to a supported version of the operating system in order to be supported by antivirus solutions at DePaul University.

Please forward any questions or concerns to the Technology Support Center at 312-362-8765 or Information Security.
