To enhance security, improve efficiency, and reduce costs, UNM will no longer provide Symantec antivirus protection for UNM-owned or personal devices. As such, we will no longer be licensing a free Symantec product for non-UNM owned machines.
Apple products have built-in security that provides some protections by default; however, individuals may wish to supplement this protection by installing a 3rd party AV solution. For more information please see Fast Info 5311.
We highly recommend that you uninstall Symantec as soon as time permits.
Note to Departments
Departmental IT should review. https://ispo.unm.edu/areas/information-security/services/endpoint-detection-and-response/index.html for information on deploying (MDE) to UNM-owned Mac devices.
