New Updates to UTA-Owned Windows Devices

With the shift to a hybrid learning and working environment, it is increasingly important to change our approach to protecting all UTA-owned Windows devices against malware, cyber-attacks, viruses, spyware, and other unauthorized activities.

UTA is implementing a number of process improvements that will change how we configure, manage, and update UTA-owned devices to offer the following benefits:

  • Greater assistance to support employees from various locations, inside or outside, the University by troubleshooting issues remotely and securely through an online console.
  • Improve access to UTA applications by automatically installing software to any UTA-owned Windows device at any location.
  • Protect University, employee, and student information by ensuring devices are running properly and securely with the latest security updates, anti-viruses, and security patches.
