UALR’s public access network (wireless, ResNet, and public facing ports) now requires up-to-date anti-virus on all Microsoft devices. To gain access to UALR’s network, an anti-virus program that can be detected by UALR’s network admission control system must be installed with the latest anti-virus definitions (no older than five days).
What kind of user are you?
Several free and fee-based anti-virus programs are available. To make this process easier UALR has found two free anti-virus software packages that function with UALR’s network admission control system. Either of these are easy to install and function with UALR’s system:
Having multiple anti-virus programs on your computer will NOT help and could make your access to the UALR network more difficult. Having multiple anti-virus programs on your computer means you have to keep all of them up-to-date. UALR recommends only one anti-virus program per computer.
Complete list of anti-virus programs that are compatible with the UALR network admission control system. NOTE: Only the listed versions are supported. If your anti-virus manufacturer and created a newer version there is the possibility that the newest version has yet to be promulgated. Anti-virus manufacturers can also write their programs in such a way that it is difficult to detect them.
- UALR is not advocating or promoting the use of a specific anti-virus product.
- Previous versions of McAfee Anti-Virus downloaded from UALR may cease to work. Please replace the old McAfee software with new anti-virus software.
- Use of any anti-virus software on a non-UALR owned personal computer is at your own risk. IT Services cannot repair personal computers.
