CrowdStrike Falcon

What?

CrowdStrike Falcon Endpoint Protection is the new anti-virus software that will be rolling out to your University of Richmond’s workstation in the near future. This will replace the current antivirus, Sophos, that is now installed on your machine.

Why?

CrowdStrike Falcon sets the new standard in endpoint security with the first and only cloud-native security platform proven to stop breaches by unifying next-gen antivirus (NGAV), endpoint detection and response (EDR), managed threat hunting and integrated threat intelligence, in a single cloud-delivered agent. Simply put - It offers better protection and better performance.

When?

CrowdStrike Falcon will begin being installed to workstations during the month on October. The install will take place in waves, but luckily there is nothing needed from you. An automatic process will install the application without interrupting your ability to work.
