Centrally managed computers

Microsoft Anti-Virus will be installed automatically on centrally managed Windows and Mac computers.

  • Fast performance - Scans will not slow your computer down
  • On-the-fly updates - Automatically updates its virus definitions as often as needed
  • Web Browser protection - Prevents sites that may contain malicious web content from loading


  • Windows
  • Mac


  • University-owned machines only.
