As part of the IT infrastructure roadmap and security improvement programme, 'Cisco Advanced Malware Protection (AMP) for Endpoints' has been launched and will replace Sophos as the recommended solution for protection against viruses, malware, and other cyber security threats on University devices.

Cisco AMP for Endpoints provides cloud-delivered, next-generation antivirus protection against advanced attacks including ransomware. It runs in the background, checking for any malicious files and activity.
