Antivirus

Virus attacks are one of the most costly and destructive forces that networks face today. All computers on the UIS network whether owned by the campus or by individuals are expected to have up-to-date anti-virus software installed to ensure the best defense against these attacks.

All UIS computers have McAfee anti-virus software installed when they are configured for the network. All incoming UIS email is protected by Barracuda Networks Spam and Virus Firewall and McAfee anti-virus software, which is installed on all UIS email servers.

If you are not sure if your computer has up-to-date anti-virus software, please contact ITS Client Services at techsupport@uis.edu. They will be happy to check your anti-virus software status and install or update your software.
