The UCB campus Symantec Endpoint Protection (SEP) licenses will be
expiring on September 30, 2014, which means that all SEP client
software must be removed from campus systems by October 1. As part of
the transition, client security software provisioning and distribution
will move from Information Security and Policy (ISP) to Endpoint
Engineering and Infrastructure (EEI). Please see the following details
for information on supported options for client security software
after the discontinuation of SEP services:
- - As of July 1, 2014, SEP software will no longer be distributed
through Software Central or the security.berkeley.edu website
- - For CSS-IT supported workstations running the BigFix/TEM client, the
Endpoint Engineering and Infrastructure team
(http://desktop.berkeley.edu) will remove Symantec and install the TEM
Core Protection Module (CPM). TEM CPM will provide anti-malware
protection to supported clients.
- - If your current SEP workstations are not supported by CSS-IT, or do
not currently have the BigFix/TEM client installed, you can contact
[hidden email] to get started with their managed client
services. The BigFix/TEM service offers client inventory, patch
management, and anti-malware protection. You can learn more about
their services at http://desktop.berkeley.edu.
- - For personally-owned systems and unmanaged university-owned
computers, Microsoft's System Center Endpoint Protection (SCEP)
anti-virus/anti-malware software is available on Software Central
current UC Berkeley faculty, staff, students and select affiliates.
The software is available for use on Mac, Windows, and Linux clients
If you have any additional questions or concerns about transitioning
away from SEP software, please feel free to contact
[hidden email] and/or [hidden email].
