TCDconnect IT security scan, July 2013

When students first register their computer for the TCDconnect service they have to download and run an IT security scan file, called the Bradford Dissolvable Agent. This scan checks that the computer has the latest operating system security updates, and that it is running an up-to-date version of one of the supported anti-virus applications. Ensuring that all devices connected to the system meet these requirements provides a high level of security, both for the service itself and for each user’s data.

From July 9th, all students with Windows PCs or Apple Macs who have been registered for the TCDconnect service since before 1st April 2013 will be required to run this IT security scan once more, to ensure that their device still meets the security requirements. If a device does not pass the scan then information is provided on how to download and install the required updates. Once the scan is passed, the computer will be re-connected to the TCDconnect service and will have internet access once more.
