Students who purchase a computer through UIW’s Laptop Program will receive a machine that has anti-virus and anti-spam software already installed and is set to update automatically.
Students who bring their own computers are required to have anti-virus and anti-spam software installed and up-to-date. Users 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.
