Dear Faculty & Staff,

McAfee antivirus software is being enhanced with McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO), a centralized security management platform that will allow more effective tracking of threats and security maintenance across the entire university network.

The addition of ePO will relieve users of having to manually download and update McAfee on MSU-owned computers.

Windows users: If you've never had McAfee on your computer before, you will see the McAfee icon in the system tray once ePO has been installed. If you already have McAfee, you may notice a change in the color of the McAfee shield icon from blue to red. No other impacts are anticipated.

Mac users: Once we have determined our ePO deployment process to Macs, a follow-up communication will be sent.


If you have any questions regarding this message, please contact the UIT Service Desk at or 406-994-1777. 

Thank you,

University Information Technology
