Antivirus

A number of measures have been taken to protect the PC work places for students and staff members and the central ICT facilities. E-mails are checked for viruses at two junctures:

  1. When the e-mail enters the central mail server
  2. When you open a message on your local PC


The mail server is equipped with a virus scanner which checks all incoming and outgoing mail. Anti Virus software is active at every work place. The virus scanners on the computers are operated centrally and they are equipped with the newest definitions against different types of infections on a daily basis.
