CrowdStrike Falcon

CrowdStrike Falcon is a next generation anti-virus that will protect against the rapidly changing tactics, techniques, and procedures used by adversaries to breach organizations. It contains signature-based and behavior-based protection for your computer that will protect you against many of the newest kinds of attacks, such as ransomware and unauthorized remote access.

CrowdStrike Falcon will be automatically installed and activated on faculty and staff UR computers in a multiple-phased process. Between now and the end of the Fall semester, IS will push out but not activate CrowdStrike on all faculty and staff computers. Then, in early February 2020, we will activate CrowdStrike so that it will begin protecting your computer. Once CrowdStrike has been activated, IS will remove Sophos from your University computer.
