On Wednesday, August 30, 2023, macOS antivirus on UNCG-managed Apple Silicon devices will move from Jamf Protect to Microsoft Defender for Enpoint on Mac. Intel-based Macs will be unaffected; they have been protected by Microsoft Defender for Endpoint on Mac since the initial release of Jamf at UNCG. 

Jamf allows Information Technology Services (ITS) to provide next-generation macOS device configuration management, keeps macOS computers up to date, and allows users to install UNCG software. 

No action is required; Apple Silicon-based Macs managed by Jamf will automatically uninstall Jamf Protect and install Microsoft Defender for Endpoint on Mac.

Please contact your department Distributed Technical Staff (DTS) or 6-TECH for assistance.
