Student, Home or Personal Computers
CCIT does not provide anti-virus software for student, home or personal computers. But CCIT’s Office of Information Security (OIS) recommends the following:
macOS computers – Sophos Home Antivirus (Free Edition) which provides real-time anti-virus, website filtering and protection, as well as remote management for up to 3 Windows or macOS devices per account. https://home.sophos.com
Windows computers – Microsoft’s Defender Security Center which is part of the Windows 10 operating system (OS). If you wish to have additional protection, or for systems with an OS older than Windows 10, we recommend Sophos Home Antivirus (Free Edition) https://home.sophos.com
