Each device connected to the network of the Jade University must be protected by an appropriate antivirus software, which is being updated regularly. The use of any device without proper protection within the network of the Jade University is forbidden.
All devices in the PC rooms of the computing centre are automatically provided with an appropriate antivirus software.
Staff can download antivirus software provided through the computing centre via the software menu when using devices, which are integrated into the network system of computers. The computing centre ensures that the ideal and current version is always accessible.
When using a device, which is not integrated into the network system of computers, there is a possibility for members of the university to download antivirus software provided through the computing centre by going to X:\HRZ-Support\Sophos. The current license is valid for private devices of university members, too.
There is also a proper antivirus software available for devices with Apple OS X or Linus. In this case, the licensing is not regulated across-the-board for all members of the university. That is why it is necessary to speak to the responsible colleagues of the computing centre. They will help and install the antivirus software for you, as long as terms of a license are met.
The computing centre uses effective filters to repel spam or viruses in e-mails. To be more specific, this is a system called Sophos Pure Message System, which is being updated multiple times a day.
As soon as an e-mail containing spam or viruses is directed at you and gets filtered, you will receive a “digest message” for information via e-mail. Alternatively, you can use the web interface under https://mx1.hs-woe.de/.
