Beginning Wednesday, February 21, 2018, Information Systems will upgrade the antivirus software on Wake Forest University issued computers to Cisco’s Advanced Malware Protection (AMP) through the campus network. This upgrade replaces Microsoft System Center Endpoint Protection (SCEP) and provides a higher level of protection from viruses and malware. This will protect Wake Forest University issued Windows and/or Apple computers.
The automated installation process will vary based on your computer model.
Apple users will receive a pop-up message from Wake Forest University Information Systems on their computer prior to the installation. After the installation, the Cisco AMP icon will appear on their toolbar.
Windows users will not receive a pop-up message. Your icon may not appear in the system tray until you manually reboot your computer at your convenience. You are still fully protected by Cisco AMP.
