Virus and Security

According to University Policy, you need to have  an up-to-date antivirus/security software package installed on your computer in order to access the Ferris wireless networks. You can also view the Privacy Policy in detail. Although several other antivirus are acceptable, we recommend:


Note: Ferris will no longer be supporting the use of computers running Windows XP since there will be no further security patches released for the operating system.


If you get an error message stating your software is not accepted please contact TAC. We should be able to add it to the approved list. We also ask that all students run a virus scan at least once a week. If you have any questions, please contact us via one of the ways listed in the Contact TAC area.
