The University of Valencia possesses campus licenses of a corporative antivirus which can be used by all Windows computers at the University both clients and servers.

Additionally, the University has bought a license package of an antivirus product for Mac OS available for the users who need it without any cost.

Note: These licenses can only be used by the PDI and the university, but students are not thought to have access to them.

Antivirus for personal Windows computers

Antivirus for this type of computers is McAfee VirusScan which, differently from former antiviruses functions through communication with a server who supplies the adequate configuration, refreshes the folders and virus patterns and can execute emergency actions to protect in case of outbreak.

McAfee VirusScan installation is done through the net; the fundamental requirement is to not have any other antivirus installed.
