IT to strengthen security of cloud-based platforms

PhishingThe IT security team is advancing in the constant cybersecurity battle. One of our major challenges has been malware and phishing attacks entering our systems.

UNCSA systems will be integrating with the Avanan Cloud Security platform. Whether it's a fake login form that attempts to steal your credentials, ransomware that locks your devices, or impersonated emails pretending to be from someone you know, Avanan will protect us from the latest security threats by combining the power of the best security tools on the market.

Avanan has been in pilot mode for two weeks, and will be rolled out to the entire campus at 8 a.m. Tuesday, May 14. We expect to be much more protected right out of the gate. In preparation for turning on this protection for the entire organization, you may see alerts from time to time that an email is suspicious or has been flagged as a phishing attempt.

Please call the help desk at 336-770-3300 if you have any questions or concerns about the new security change.
