Securing a personal computer at Feinberg School of Medicine for use with Microsoft Outlook and Teams

In order to configure your Northwestern email account in Outlook or to use the Microsoft Teams application, you will need to install BigFix and our BIG-IP Edge Client. In order to successfully install these applications, your computer's hard drive will need to be encrypted and an antivirus needs to be installed and fully updated before being able to install these applications.

Hard drive encryption

Symantec Anti-virus

Big IP Edge Client

Once you have full disk encryption and Symantec AV, you can then install our IBM BigFix client, which will then install the BIG-IP Edge Client. The installation files can be found here: http://www.feinberg.northwestern.edu/it/big-fix/download.html

With the BIG-IP Edge Client configured, installed, and fully connected (you'll need to sign in with your NetID and password and your computer will need to pass the checks for the requirements above), you can then configure your email account on Outlook using these instructions
