Anti-virus and Malware Protection

Features

TWU has chosen MalwareBytes, as our End-Point protection solution for TWU devices. MalwareBytes, an enterprise solution that provides the highest possible level of protection, and ensures that TWU can continue to protect against the latest rapidly-evolving threats like phishing emails and malicious software.

Additionally, the TWU Network team leverages a network-level anti-spyware solution.

Getting started

Faculty and staff Windows machines run Malwarebytes.

A free version of Malwarebytes (for home use) is also available for free download (on Windows, Mac, and mobile) to anyone

Students are encouraged to install an antivirus program on their personal machines; however, the University does not currently provide a no-cost option. There are many excellent options available for Mac and Windows computers, including free programs such as Microsoft Security Essentials for Windows 7 , Microsoft Defender for Windows 8 and 10, and a 30-day trial of Sophos Anti-Virus for Mac Home Edition.
