CIS is working to replace McAfee--our current antivirus software-- with CrowdStrike, which will provide the TC community with greater protection against online threats, including improved malware prevention.
Faculty and staff who use TC-owned desktops and laptops will not need to do anything in order to facilitate the change--CrowdStrike will be installed and McAfee will be removed remotely by CIS.
Once CrowdStrike has been installed, you will not need to do anything to activate or use the software—CrowdStrike uses real-time protection and runs in the background.
Students will also have access to a free download of CrowdStrike. To install the software, please log into the myTC Portal and locate the Computer Security & Antivirus section under TC Bookmarks.
If you have any questions or need any assistance, contact the Service Desk at 212.678.3300 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
