How to protect your computer
Symantec Endpoint Protection Software
Symantec Endpoint Protection (SEP) is licensed by Symantec Corporation to SUNY Fredonia. A provision of that license agreement allows registered students to use a copy of the software on their personal computers. Former students are not eligible to use the software.
Mac computers will continue to be protected by the Symantec Antivirus Corporate product
DisclaimerBy downloading Symantec Endpoint Protection software you are indicating that you have read and agree to the following:
You must uninstall other Anti-Virus programs before you install Symantec Endpoint Protection. If you are upgrading from a previous version of Symantec Anti-Virus, you must first uninstall it. Mac Users: If for any reason this does not work, go to Symantec's Website to download the RemoveSymantecMacFiles removal utility.
Please only download and install this program if you are comfortable or experienced with such operations. SUNY Fredonia provides this software as a service but cannot take responsibility for your choice to download and install programs.
SUNY Fredonia is providing SEP to students as a courtesy since every computer connected to the campus network is required to run current anti-virus protection software. "Managed" anti-virus protection is in place on campus-owned computers.
ResNet and Non-ResNet student anti-virus protection is un-managed. (University's Computer and Network Usage Policy A. Academic/Administrative and Residential (ResNet) Network, Anti-virus Protection V. Services, Section 1)
The ResNet Office provides limited hardware and software support for all students that live in the residence halls. This includes support for the installation and problem resolution of the University provided SEP as well as other anti-virus software applications.
