Engineering Technical Services is rolling out new tools to keep ASU systems better protected and to alert you of accidental storage of personal data. These tools are rolling out in a phased deployment, and will begin deploying to systems starting Wednesday, May 1, 2019. Deployment should happen as part of systems regular update maintenance and require no user intervention. If you do have any questions about any of these, please feel free to reach out to your IT Manager.

CrowdStrike

A new Antivirus/Antimalware product that is cross-platform for Windows, Mac and Linux systems has been chosen to improve ASU’s systems protection to new and ever-evolving threat vectors, and also promises to have a low-performance overhead with the use of cloud-based processing.

Spirion 

A rebranded and upgraded release of Identify Finder, Spirion has better performance and better supports cloud storage platforms. This tool is configured to scan your system for any files that contain SSN and Credit Card numbers, and then lets you decide what to do with those files. It does NOT report back on what it finds, and is mainly a tool to empower you to better decide where to store such personal information. The updated version is being deployed for Windows and Mac.
