Trellix Endpoint Security (Antivirus)

Trellix (formerly known as FireEye Endpoint Security) is a modern endpoint protection (antivirus) software that can detect and prevent malicious digital threats that infiltrate our devices before they spread to our most critical data.

This software, officially approved and licensed by UCLA, aligns with the UC Office of the President’s IS-3 policy and supports UCLA’s Threat Detection and Identification (TDI) initiative. Safeguarding information assets and administrative data is crucial to uphold UCLA's dedication to fostering a security-conscious culture while fulfilling its mission in teaching, research, and public service.

With Trellix, we will:  

  • Protect Bruin Community data (e.g. SSN, medical records, IDs, mailing address)
  • Prevent loss or alteration of research data, admission data, etc.
  • Shield our critical systems (e.g. MyUCLA, Box, and Bruin Learn) from cybersecurity-related disruptions

The Trellix Endpoint Security software unifies prevention, detection, and response in a single agent powered by machine learning and automation. With Trellix, UCLA endpoints (i.e. laptops, desktops, and servers) are protected from vulnerabilities and potential security exploits.

The agent supports all modern versions of Windows, macOS, and most variants of Linux.
