Virus Protection

McAfee Virus Scan Enterprise 8.7/8.5 with anti spyware
Free to ALL FAMU Faculty, Staff  & Students for work or personal computers!

McAfee VirusScan Enterprise is an innovative technology for PCs and servers. It proactively stops and removes malicious software, extends coverage against new security risks, and reduces the cost of responding to outbreaks. Enterprises cannot afford to wait for every threat to be identified and a signature file to be released. The time between attack and subsequent identification is critical, and the shorter, the better. It's better yet if your protection technology identifies new, unknown threats.

By blending advanced anti-virus, firewall, and intrusion prevention technologies, VirusScan Enterprise covers a broad range of threats. With advanced heuristics and generic detection it finds even new, unknown viruses, even hidden in compressed files. McAfee VirusScan Enterprise looks for exploits known to target Microsoft applications and services and will identify and block threats that take advantage of JavaScript and VisualBasic coding.

Remember, it's Free to ALL FAMU Faculty, Staff  & Students for work or personal computers!  That's right, you can install it on your work or home PC or Mac computer if you are a faculty, staff or student of Florida A&M University!

McAfee is only avaiable via the FAMU network.  If you wish to also download it for home use, you can visit our service center and download it to a portable drive.
