Anti-Virus & Malware Prevention


Computer viruses, worms, and other malicious software can destroy important data, compromise security, and generate a large volume of network traffic. Infected computers can have a disastrous effect on the USF Health network. They can also put a strain on the campus's ability to accomplish core business activities and instructional functions. In order to protect the campus computing infrastructure, you must have antivirus software installed and updated on your computers. We ensure those measures are in place on your computers, laptops, and all online accounts used at USF Health.
