The Office of Information Technology is committed to providing our students with the next generation of anti-virus/anti-malware software that can protect against spyware, intrusions, and vulnerabilities. Effective immediately, OIT no longer supports or offers Symantec Endpoint Protection and instead offers the Microsoft Defender Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) software for Windows and Mac.

If you are a student interested in using ATP (it's free!), we recommend that you uninstall your Symantec Endpoint Software (or any other anti-virus you currently have installed), then download and install ATP.

If you need assistance with this installation, please make an appointment at or cal 228-HELP (4357).
