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. This requirement applies to all operating systems including MacOS, Linux and Windows.

Cal Poly provides Sophos Central Endpoint Protection software at no charge to eligible Cal Poly users. Sophos Central Endpoint Protection proactively guards your computer against malware, advanced threats, ransomware, viruses, worms, spyware and other threats.

Faculty and staff should contact the ITS Service Desk to install and configure Sophos Central Endpoint Protection on their campus computer. If you do not have a CITC, contact the ITS Service Desk for assistance (see below).

Download and Install Antivirus Software for Use On Your Own Computer

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.
