Virus & Spyware

It is important to protect your computer and your data as well. One of the many ways that data can be compromised is through computer viruses.  They can be spread through emails, downloads, social media sites, or not having the latest security updates on your computing device.

Information Systems regularly sends automatic updates over the network to university-owned computers, and we have also pre-loaded university-owned computers with Microsoft EndPoint, which regularly scans your computer for viruses.

We recommend Sophos antivirus protection on WakeWare and BYOD Apple computers, available at software.wfu.edu.
