Endpoint Protection for Personal Computers (staff, faculty or students)

University Systems recommends that all computers utilize anti-virus or endpoint protection software to protect computers against known malicious software (e.g. viruses, worms, trojans) and manage the risks associated with vulnerable software and suspicious activity. 
University owned computers must utilize Microsoft Defender for Endpoint (MSDE).  MSDE is available for university-owned Windows, MacOS, and Linux desktop and laptop computers free of charge.
