Dear Pepperdine Faculty and Staff,
Pepperdine’s Information Technology division is continuing the installation of Endpoint Protection.
Many people who have Pepperdine-owned computers running the Windows operating system already have received the Sophos antivirus client. Others may expect the installation in the coming weeks. Please note the following:
What will happen:
In order to prevent conflicts with other antivirus programs, the Sophos installation process may remove existing antivirus solutions installed on your computer.
What you might see:
You may see messages indicating that various antivirus programs were removed and/or encouraging you to obtain antivirus protection.
Please ignore or minimize these messages should they appear.
(They will disappear on their own.)
A blank black window:
Find an antivirus message:
Upon installation, Sophos, your new antivirus program, will appear as a shield in your system tray.
We appreciate your cooperation during the installation process. We know the Endpoint Protection Service will help keep the University data and community safe.
