Microsoft Defender

To enhance the security of campus managed computers IT is moving from Malwarebytes to Microsoft Defender on PCs and Macs. Mac users will notice a new icon on the menu bar and a new Microsoft Defender application. The transition for PCs will be seamless with enhanced security features enabled on the existing Defender installations. These enhanced features will help detect and remediate vulnerabilities and attacks in real time. Malwarebytes will be removed from all campus managed computers. The removal process should happen in the background and should not require user intervention.
