symantec-logo-72The MU Information Security office strongly recommends using antivirus software and keeping operating systems up-to-date. Symantec® Endpoint Protection (SEP) is an antivirus software solution which is offered to all Marshall students, faculty, and staff at no extra charge.

The current version of SEP is available as a web download for Windows and Mac OS operating systems. A MUNET account username and password are required to access the download link.

There are two download options of SEP available:

  1. The PERSONAL/HOME version is optimized for use by students, faculty, and staff on personally-owned computers that are frequently used at home or on-campus. Be sure to uninstall any existing anti-virus software before installing this version of Symantec Endpoint Protection®. Running multiple antivirus applications can cause problems with your computer.
  2. The MANAGED version is optimized for installation on University-owned computers. Virus-definitions are received through LiveUpdate whether on-campus or off. Managed client software also periodically updates the MU campus server with the security status of the client – whether protected, at-risk or infected.

If you have questions, concerns or comments, please contact the Marshall University IT Service Desk @ (304)-696-3200.

Please submit all matters concerning security incidents using the Information Security Incident Report Form.
