Antivirus Protection

ITS is upgrading the current antivirus/malware tool to ensure that Brandeis maintains a secure computing environment against malicious activity. enSilo will replace Symantec and Malwarebytes as the new endpoint security protection tool that is designed to stop advanced cyber threats, viruses and malware, in real-time.

ITS will begin installing enSilo on university-owned desktops and laptops starting in late January 2019. The deployment process has been designed to have minimal-to-no-impact on you and your machine. No action is required on your part as the installation will run silently in the background, will not affect computer software or performance, and a computer reboot will not be required.
