TC Self Service App for Apple Devices

Teachers College is rolling out the TC Self Service app for Apple Devices, which will allow Teachers College faculty and staff to download CIS-supported software directly onto their Mac desktops, laptops and iPads. A comparable service will be available soon for Windows machines.

 

The Self Service app is similar to the Apple App Store and provides customized content for TC-issued Mac laptops, desktops and iPads. This content includes access to TC software, critical system security updates, links, and other documentation. The Self Service app gives you  the flexibility of choosing what to install and when to install it. Self Service will function when you are on or off of the Teachers College network.

 

Some of the software available includes the iLife suite, Office for Mac, SPSS, Adobe CS6 and more.

 

The Self Service app is managed and maintained by CIS. If you would like to see a specific software title added to TC Software Self Service, please contact the Service Desk.  

 

The Self Service app is only available for Mac laptops and desktops that are issued by Teachers College (excludes personal Mac computers).

Multi-Factor Authentication for myTC Portal

In order to protect your confidential direct deposit banking information accessible via your myTC portal login, all Teachers College faculty and staff will be required to use Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) to access their online, self-service direct deposit banking information. MFA provides a secure avenue for TC employees to access direct deposit information from both on and off campus. 

You have probably used some form of MFA with your financial institution or credit card company. As with many financial institutions, when accessing your financial information in the myTC Portal, you will now be required to use something you know (password) with something you have--such as a text message, notification to a smartphone, or a call to a landline in order to verify your identity. 

Teachers College has selected Duo (https://guide.duo.com/) as the MFA service to verify your identity for the myTC Portal. 

For more information and step-by-step instructions, please visit: www.tc.columbia.edu/computing/secure-computing/how-to-use-duo 

If you have any questions, please contact the Service Desk.

CrowdStrike Antivirus

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 servicedesk@tc.columbia.edu.
