Defender yes, Trend no

CLAS-IT is Removing Trend anti-Virus and enabling Windows Defender.  Since we have really good tools for monitoring Malware activity using our desktop support tool, SCCM, we are moving forward with using the built in Microsoft program Windows Defender to keep CLAS Windows Systems safe from Malware.  This change is being rolled out automatically and the only thing you may notice is a new icon in the system tray.

We have confidence in the ability of Microsoft to use its vast resources to identity and eliminate the many malware threats that attack our network of computers every day.  Microsoft has shown that they can get out updates to block new malware within a few hours of seeing Malware infections across the globe with their Heuristics AI network.
