Are you afraid of getting a computer virus? Did you know that NC State offers free antivirus software?
If you’re a current NC State student, faculty or staff member and you’re in need of antivirus protection for your Windows, Mac OS X or Android devices, you can get Kaspersky Antivirus to keep them virus-free. Kaspersky replaces Trend Micro and is available for both university-owned and personally-owned devices. Individuals can install the software on up to three personal devices.
NC State requires approved antivirus software to be installed and kept up-to-date for computers connecting to the campus network. Instead of Kaspersky, you may use one of the Approved Alternate Antivirus Products. However, be advised that the NC State Help Desk does not provide technical support for any alternate antivirus software.
