Antivirus for ETSU computers

ETSU is currently using Microsoft System Center Endpoint Protection on computers configured for the ETSU domain. If you have a machine that needs to have an antivirus program installed, or if you need to replace Symantec Endpoint Protection that's currently installed on a machine, please contact the ITS Help Desk so that we may put in a ticket to have this done. Please do not try to install Microsoft Security Essentials onto an ETSU computer.
