New Anti-Malware Software – SentinelOne

UMW Faculty and Staff,

The IT Department is working on a project to migrate all Windows and Mac workstations from the legacy Symantec Endpoint Protection anti-malware software currently in use to next-generation anti-malware software from SentinelOne.

The SentinelOne software client will be automatically pushed to and installed on your computer in the coming weeks. Shortly after that, the old Symantec Endpoint Protection client will be automatically removed. There is nothing you need to do to prepare for these changes, and they will happen in the background and should not interfere with the use of your computer.

After the SentinelOne software client has been installed, you will see the product logo below in the system tray on your computer.

If you have questions or concerns about the SentinalOne anti-malware software, you can contact me directly or the Help Desk at 540-654-2255 or

Thank you,

Mike Townes
Director of Information Technology Security/ISO
