Anti Virus software refresh project - Update #1

Anti Virus software refresh project - Update #1

Latest update regarding the Anti-virus software deployment.

What is happening?

As previously communicated, the University of Aberdeen is replacing the Sophos anti-virus software installed on all University-owned campus-based Windows PCs and laptops.  

The first stage of this replacement will start today with DIT enabling a Windows component called Configuration Manager, which will then facilitate the removal of Sophos and the addition of the new anti-virus solution at a later date.

What should you do?

You will see a new component in the Control Panel called Configuration Manager and a new item on the start menu called “Microsoft System Center 2012 Configuration Manager”.  

There is no further action required on your part.

Further updates will be issued when we are ready to replace Sophos and a further update will follow for Apple Mac users. Please refer to the following web page http://www.abdn.ac.uk/dit/antivirus/ for more details.
