Avast, one of the programs that we use for anti-virus protection, has changed their business model and will no longer allow us to use their product for free. That means most of you either have, or will shortly receive notification on your computer that the Avast Trial has expired.
No need to worry as you are still being protected by the other product we use, Cylance.
In order to prevent the expired version of Avast from affecting your computer in a negative way, particularly for those that use the Global Protect VPN client, it is important to restart your computer as soon as possible or if you find that something is not working as expected. We are exploring other options to work in conjunction with Cylance and will keep you posted.
