Malware Protection

Install Antivirus and Anti-spyware Software

All computing systems must install the University approved management policy framework to manage antivirus and anti-spyware software. All desktop systems and servers that connect to the network must be protected with a University approved licensed anti-virus software product that is kept updated with the latest DAT files and anti-spyware software according to the vendor’s recommendations.

Corporate or Enterprise security software helps to secure the university network by providing several products and layers of defense. This is not the same type of product used for home use. It is important not to install any antivirus software other than the University’s approved product.

Approved Software
