Anti-Virus Software

University PCs and Servers are all protected by anti-virus software which is managed centrally by ISS.

The department manages the University’s central repository of anti-virus software and virus signatures; synchronising it with the anti-virus supplier’s latest versions; and ensuring all updates received are pushed to all computer agents, be they other Servers or the PCs you use.

Further protection is required if you are using your own PC and are intending to connect onto the University’s intranet using wireless connections refer to Service Desk

A separate anti-virus and anti-spam defence for the protection of the University’s email systems is deployed to a set of email gateways which deals with infected or barred emails before they get into the email system.
