New antivirus software is coming to you in 2014

A new antivirus solution, Sophos Endpoint Security, will replace Microsoft Forefront on all ACU owned and leased devices in 2014. Sophos Endpoint Security brings one main benefit to protect both Windows and non-Windows devices against all known threats. There will also be a reduction in the number of updates being required with the new antivirus, resulting in minimal impact on system resources.

The computers available to students in the public access areas have already been migrated to Sophos Endpoint Security.  Staff PCs including “work@home” will be migrated to the new antivirus solution during 2014.
