New security software available for Brown-owned Windows computers

All faculty and staff who use Windows on a Brown-owned computer are required to download and install our new computer security agent as soon as possible. The security agent will be required to use the VPN. There is no need to uninstall any other software before installing this software.

After following our brief instructions, please be sure you restart your computer for full effect. Once you complete that, you'll know your computer is ready to use at home or on campus with no further action required.

Installation instructions are available here, and please note it is only available for faculty and staff:

If you have any questions, please reach out to your IT support staff or the IT Service Center.

Note, we are preparing Mac and Linux  installers as well for release soon, but for now you can use Mac and Linux computers without the new security agent.
