Kaspersky antivirus software now available for personally-owned devices

NC State students and employees can now download Kaspersky, the university’s new antivirus protection, for their personally-owned devices. Kaspersky replaces TrendMicro.

A campus version, to be installed only on university-owned devices, is targeted to be available by the end of May, after testing is complete. Until then, be sure to keep using Trend Micro on university-owned devices.

When the campus version is available, OIT will notify all IT staff as usual via SysNews, OIT News and similar media. Please contact your local IT person for more details.


  • Before you install Kaspersky on your devices, you will need to uninstall all other antivirus programs you may have. For instructions, see Uninstalling Trend Micro and other antivirus products.
  • An approved antivirus software is required on any device that connects to the campus network.

For more information, see NC State Antivirus Resources. Questions should be directed to the NC State Help Desk at help@ncsu.edu or 919.515.HELP (4357).
