SCEP for Mac and Linux Support Ends Dec 31, 2018
For CSS-IT or departmental IT supported systems that are institutionally owned and are managed with BigFix, the Endpoint Operations and Services (EOS) team (https://technology.berkeley.edu/services/device-support/berkeley-desktop) manages Windows Defender for supported Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 clients. For more information on CSS-IT supported computers please contact CSS-IT at 510-664-9000 options 1, 1, or send e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
For institutionally owned workstations that are not supported by CSS-IT, but are supported by departmental IT and do not currently have the BigFix client installed, you can contact the Endpoint Operations and Services (EOS) team to get started with their managed client services. The BigFix service offers client inventory, patch management, and anti-malware protection. You can learn more about their services at https://technology.berkeley.edu/services/device-support/berkeley-desktop.
Mac OS Clients:
Personally-owned devices running macOS Sierra or higher should use the native anti-virus/anti-malware. Built-in macOS security features for Sierra and higher will continue to meet MSSND and protect your Mac from viruses and malware threats. If you are running SCEP on a mac device, the software should be uninstalled. A SCEP uninstaller is available in the Downloads section below.
If you are using SCEP on a mac running Sierra or below, SCEP should be uninstalled, and the operating system updated to the latest version of macOS.
UC Berkeley recommends the use of the built-in Windows Defender for Windows 8, Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 computers. Microsoft's System Center Endpoint Protection (SCEP) anti-virus/anti-malware software is available to UC Berkeley faculty, staff, students and select affiliates for use on personally-owned Windows 7 systems
Computers running Windows 7 will require an additional tool to install SCEP from the .iso files. For more information on installing software from .iso files see the Mounting .iso Files FAQ.
