Protecting your computer

Viruses, Trojans, and Worms are malicious programs that are easily spread across computers with email and internet access. 

UNL offers antivirus protection for all University-owned computers, as well as for computers personally-owned by UNL students, faculty and staff.  This service is offered at no charge to the campus.

Using the UNL-provided antivirus is not required, but you may be required to use an antivirus program with current definitions for your computer to be granted access on UNL's network.

Malicious attacks can result in
  • Identity theft
  • Corrupt and deleted files
  • Loss of network connectivity
  • Compromised computers that are remotely controlled by hackers

  • Prevent intrusions and stop attacks before they reach endpoints
  • Protect endpoints from known and unknown threats using advanced threat prevention
