Goodbye Sophos, hello CrowdStrike

OIT is in the process of transitioning away from Sophos and to CrowdStrike. This has been underway for a few months, but what’s changing is the pace of our remaining deployment. Having successfully tested CrowdStrike throughout the college, next week we will begin to push it out to all college-owned systems (except VDI workstations, which will receive it later this month).

This means the familiar blue shield you have come to recognize as protecting your machine will go away. Most people will not notice the CrowdStrike Falcon sensor running on your computer, but you will be protected by this robust Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) system. If you have any questions or would like to learn more about this, please contact OIT at [email protected].
