Over the next 4 months, the Office of Information Technology (OIT) will be updating the campus antivirus software on all UCO-owned computers. We will be seamlessly replacing Symantec Endpoint Protection with Microsoft Defender for Endpoint. This will occur in phases and be coordinated with all UCO techs. Ongoing communications will be targeted to your area of operations or your college throughout this multi-phased implementation. The only action required by you will be a computer restart when prompted. 

For more information, check out the Microsoft Defender Antivirus knowledge base article. If you have questions, contact the UCO Service Desk at support@uco.edu or by phone at 405-974-2255.
