OIT Security to Install Microsoft Defender

Starting in July, OIT will be transitioning campus machines from McAfee antivirus to Microsoft Defender. OIT will be performing this software update remotely. Faculty and staff may notice a logo change in the toolbar; however, no action is required of end users. If machines are off campus, they will receive the new software when they return to campus or connect to VPN.

If you experience any issues please contact the IT Service Desk at itsd@ua.edu or 205-348-5555.
