Project Overview

The University of Texas at Arlington is changing how we configure, manage, and update UTA-owned Windows devices. These new improvements will increase the overall protection of University assets and continue to ensure protection against malware, cyber-attacks, viruses, spyware, or other unauthorized activities. With these latest advancements, the University will be able to offer greater flexibility to support faculty and staff from various locations while ensuring critical updates are maintained on UTA-owned Windows devices.

 

Benefits

  • Increase productivity and availability of IT personnel and Distributed Support Associates (DSA) by automating routine management tasks and allowing more time to support employees.
  • Increases security for lost and stolen devices by ensuring the recoverability of data for authorized personnel only and making it inaccessible to unauthorized third parties by encrypting devices, enabling passwords, and generating recovery keys.
  • Produces greater opportunities for increased savings through the combination of the security portfolio and the reduction of annual licensing for SecureDoc.
  • Improve access to UTA applications by automatically installing software to any UTA-owned 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.
  • Achieves verifiable compliance with federal and state regulations through the comprehensive and accurate security reporting of all enrolled or registered UTA-owned devices.
  • Increases productivity through time-saving automation by providing access to UTA software and security policies through a web-based console thereby minimizing actions required by faculty, staff, and IT personnel.
  • Greater assistance to support employees from various locations inside or outside the University by troubleshooting issues remotely and securely through an online console.
