K-State Antivirus Software

K-Staters connecting their computers to the Kansas State University network are required to use the university's antivirus software, Trend Micro Antivirus. This software is provided free to students, faculty, and staff for both university-owned computers and personal home computers. All computers running Windows or Mac OS X operating system must have Trend Micro Antivirus installed before connecting to the K-State network.

Currently, Trend Micro does not have a version of OfficeScan for Linux, but they are working on one. Until that product is available, Linux workstations (e.g., those functioning as a personal computer, not a server) must run an antivirus software. The K-State SIRT recommends using the freeware product ClamAV.
