New Year! New Antivirus!

Beginning in early January of 2009, the Office of Information Technology (OIT) will begin providing free access to new antivirus software for campus.

As part of efforts to continually improve antivirus and malware protection for the campus, OIT recently selected Trend Micro’s OfficeScan as the new university-wide antivirus product. Trend Micro OfficeScan provides improved protection and faster updates when new viruses are identified.


Antivirus protection is required of all faculty, staff and students connecting to the campus network.


Users do not need to take any action at this time. Please visit the NCSU Antivirus Resources Web site for updates and to read more about the TrendMicro OfficeScan product.
