Malware Protection ChangeFireAMPlogo

To protect computer workstations from malware (software that is intended to damage or disable computers and computer systems), Sam Houston State University uses a security tool by SourceFire called FireAMP. The malware discovery and analysis platform identifies advanced malware threats, and provides data necessary to understand the scope of the threat and contain it.

Until recently, threats were stopped manually. Beginning January 20, 2017, FireAMP will automatically block suspicious activity and display a pop-up message.

If you believe that a block is unwarranted, please contact the IT@Sam Service Desk at 936-294-HELP or servicedesk@shsu.edu and we will explore the threat further.

For questions, or to report issues, please contact IT@Sam Service Desk.
