General Information

Endpoint protection is just another software package that can be installed by Multi-Tenant Munki. Please check with the service manager of your endpoint protection system for the preferred package.

Multi-Tenant Munki offers a campus-wide Sophos (macOS anti-virus, anti-malware) package for installation. This campus-wide Sophos installer is also available at https://webstore.illinois.edu/shop/product.aspx?zpid=3218&shopby=2 . This Sophos installer may also be installed without using Multi-Tenant Munki.

The Mac Endpoint Services team can also assist units in packaging up custom installers for other endpoint protection systems, including the campus Malwarebytes service.
