  • Antivirus Software Update

    New Antivirus Software For Ursinus Faculty and Staff.

     

    After an extensive period of testing and evaluation, the college has decided to end our relationship with our previous anti-virus vendor Sophos, and adopt a new anti-virus software, Palo Alto Traps Antivirus; consequently, if you have Sophos installed on your computer you need to take action to keep your computer protected.

     

    All Ursinus faculty and staff issued computers are impacted.

     

    An email with information was sent to those needing to update their computers.  If at any time you have a question, or if you’d like to speak to someone to assist, please call Tech Support at 610-409-3789 or stop by and we can help. 

     

    You should be on campus to install.
