Mobile device security including that for laptops, tablets, and smart phones is of particular importance. All mobile devices, whether personal or University-owned, need to be protected by a secure passcode or password. In addition, all mobile computers connected to the University network need to use anti-virus software. Please visit the Virtual Service Center to install free anti-virus software. Access the virtual service center by visiting http://www.up.edu/is and selecting "Online Help." Select "Browse Service Catalog" to download Symantec software.
