Antivirus Options: Mac

Cornell policy requires all university-owned computers to use antivirus protection, and strongly recommends the same for any computer used by a member of the Cornell community. See options for antivirus protection on personal or university-owned Mac computers. 

This article applies to: Antivirus


Personally-Owned Computers and Non-Managed University-Owned Computers

We recommend using one of the following three free options. All products provide similar protection. You should always configure antivirus software for automatic updates and real-time threat protections.

If you have questions, consult your local technical support provider or contact anti-virus@cornell.edu.

Managed University-Owned Computers

If the university-owned computer is managed by a unit that's signed a Certified Desktop agreement, your IT staff will deploy CrowdStrike automatically via JAMF.
