Notice of Upcoming Change to Williams Computers - Anti-virus replacement

Beginning later this week, OIT will start deploying a replacement for our current Anti-Virus program, Sophos. Most people will not be required to perform any actions, and you likely will not notice the change.


Sophos is being replaced with an Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) tool called CrowdStrike. CrowdStrike has successfully been protecting Williams’ servers for some time, and we have decided to expand this to everyone for increased protection.


If you notice that the small blue “S” for Sophos is missing from your computer, don’t worry, your system is still protected. If you have any questions, please email me. If you encounter any problems, please email [email protected] to open a ticket.
