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
