switches to Norton virus protection
The Information Technology Division (ITD) recently announced that
Symantec/ Norton Anti-Virus will replace McAfee as the new desktop
and server antivirus product at Emory. The decision to license the
Norton product was made after months of research and analysis by
ITD and campus IT staff.
The new product now is licensed for all Emory and Oxford students,
faculty and staff for both campus and home computers. It is essential
that all Emory individuals install the new software as soon as possible
and no later than Dec. 31.
An automated installation is included with the Fall 2003 Emory Online
tool, which is available on CD or it can be downloaded from
http://software.service.emory.edu. This tool
also uninstalls the old McAfee software.
Before installing/uninstalling your software, individuals should
contact their department local support representatives for a specific
installation schedule and guidance. Certain departments may have
McAfee Anti-Virus no longer will be distributed, however to assist
the community, the service to download antivirus updates (DAT files)
for McAfee will be continued through Dec. 31.
