UIW provides anti-virus and anti-spam protection for all university-owned computers through Microsoft Forefront (desktops) and Microsoft Security Essentials (laptops).

Computer systems are set to automatically receive updates, and users should not change these settings. All PC-based computers (including UIW-owned systems) connecting to the UIW wireless network will go through a network access control (NAC) program to ensure that anti-virus and anti-spam software is up-to-date before the system is granted access.
