BigFix and CrowdStrike provide Berkeley Lab staff with a powerful and reliable defense against continuously evolving modern threats at no cost.
BigFix has been deployed on over 6,000 Windows, Mac, and Linux systems across the Lab to deliver critical computer maintenance and security updates. In the event of an attack, a robust antivirus solution like Crowdstrike helps to detect, prevent, and mitigate disasters.
Maintaining updates for operating systems, devices, and applications is the #1 IT recommendation for protecting your computer. Attackers frequently target computers running outdated operating systems and applications, which have known and readily exploitable vulnerabilities. BigFix helps IT identify and remediate any exposed or out-of-date systems.
We strongly encourage staff to install BigFix and CrowdStrike on Lab computers. For systems running experiments and ongoing operations, these services can be implemented at convenient time, and system reboots will never happen automatically. Leverage IT services to protect sensitive data and create a secure environment for your work.
