Anti-malware / Anti-virus Software

(General)

Whether you are using a Windows Personal Computer (PC) or a Mac, you are required to have anti-malware (anti-virus) software installed. There are no exceptions to this requirement.

For Windows PCs, MUSC provides Microsoft's System Center Endpoint Protection (SCEP 2012). You should have this set to run a quick scan at a minimum of once per week and a full scan once per month. Visit www.musc.edu/est for download information.

For Macs, MUSC provides Microsoft System Center Endpoint Protection for Mac (SCEP for Mac). The number of Macs with malware (virus) compromises have been growing exponentially over the past year. In the past, Macs were not frequently targeted by malware (virus), but this is no longer true. Visit www.musc.edu/est for for download information.
