The University uses Sophos anti-virus software to manage, monitor and control malware. This software is available at no charge for University staff and student use.

ITS also protects the University network by:

  • applying regular security patches
  • scanning all email attachments and blocking anything potentially malicious (such as .exe files)
  • using a central firewall, which reduces the spread of malware across the network
  • emailing notices to 'All Departments' or 'All Staff' mailing lists if there is a potential security risk.
