In February Extension IT solicited offices to test a management framework for VirusScan called ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO). Today I am pleased to report that testing has gone exceedingly well, and we are now prepared to begin deploying ePO to all managed Extension computers (those in the IASTATE domain).
Beginning Friday, April 22, the ePO agent will automatically install on your computer when you log on. The installation is silent; you won't see anything unusual appear on the screen. If needed, ePO will then upgrade VirusScan behind the scenes to version 8.0, the most recent version. From then on, ePO and EIT will keep your antivirus up to date without any intervention from you!
