Antivirus – Symantec Endpoint Protection
Symantec Endpoint Protection v12.1 is the WFU standard virus scanning software. Symantec Endpoint Protection provides protection against network and Internet threats such as viruses, malware and spyware. A preconfigured weekly virus scan is scheduled on Tuesday at 11:00 a.m. It is strongly encouraged that you let this automatic scan run the full scan. If the Tuesday, 11:00a.m. scan is inconvenient, you can change the scheduled time by:
- Double-click on yellow shield icon in Notification Area to open Symantec.
- Click on Scan for Threats in left pane.
- Right-click on WFU Default Weekly Full Scan and select Edit.
- Click on Scan Schedule tab and change day and time as desired
Please remember that a weekly scan is imperative. Now more than ever, we must be vigilant about protecting our data from viruses and spyware.
