Anti-Virus Software Information
Anti-virus software is an essential part of safe computing. Proof of current anti-virus software is required for network access in all campus housing areas. This requirement applies to all computing operating systems including Windows, Apple/Macintosh and handheld computing devices.
Cal Poly provides Symantec Endpoint Protection software at no charge to eligible Cal Poly users. Symantec Endpoint Protection proactively guards your computer against viruses, worms, spyware and other threats.
Faculty and staff should contact their LAN Coordinator to install and configure Symantec Endpoint Protection on their campus computer. If you do not have a LAN Coordinator, contact the ITS Service Desk for assistance (see below).
If you have problems downloading the software, contact the ITS Service Desk (see below). Residence hall students should contact ResNET to make sure their computer is properly configured to use the Cal Poly and Residence Hall networks.
