Anti Virus Requirements and Procedures
The IT Services Division at UMass Boston offers the latest in anti-virus protection for your computer and the university network. We will continue to make available the most recent protection against viruses and provide updated information on threats, and ways to counteract these threats. Providing anti-virus protection and information is another way we are setting the standard for a stable computing environment, and also safeguarding the information infrastructure. By striving to create a community of responsible computer users, we are fulfilling our mission as a service-driven department to protect and enhance the university’s valuable information resources.
