Anti-virus Protection

In order to meet campus security guidelines, university computers must have university provided Symantec Endpoint Protection (SEP) software installed. Symantec Endpoint Protection is licensed for Windows and Macintosh computers for the campus and will proactively protect these machines . In addition to detecting and removing dangerous viruses, worms, and Trojan horses, Symantec Endpoint Protection automatically blocks spyware installation and detects and removes stealth spyware.

Campus technology coordinators have the ability to install and configure university provided antivirus software onto university computers. Only university provided antivirus software shall be installed. Conflicts can occur when multiple antivirus software runs concurrently and non-university software is not allowed to be installed on university provided computers.
