Antivirus Solutions to Replace Symantec
The UW–Madison license for Symantec Antivirus will end on June 24 for students and July 31 for faculty and staff. University-owned devices (including Windows and macOS) should be running Cisco AMP, the university’s centrally managed endpoint security software. Your IT administrator will handle the removal and update to the new Cisco AMP tool. If you have downloaded and installed Symantec Antivirus on your personal device, you must remove it before June 24 (for students) or July 31 (for faculty/staff). The Office of Cybersecurity has recommended antivirus solutions for personally owned devices.
