Overview

Antivirus/Anti-malware software helps keep the network clean and safe for all campus users.  The Desktop Engineering team maintains the central antivirus service that provides updates and reporting for all the enterprise antivirus clients.  If you have a university-owned machine, it should already have this software loaded and configured for you.

As of 7/6/2019 the campus-wide antivirus solution for Creighton owned computers is SentinelOne endpoint security.  For more information on SentinelOne go to doit.creighton.edu/sentinelone.
