CIT discontinues VirusBarrier license

CIT has discontinued its license for VirusBarrier, the previously College-provided anti-virus software for Macs. It is the opinion of CIT that viruses are not a major threat to Mac computers and many anti-virus programs waste valuable system resources and may make computers run more slowly. Users currently running VirusBarrier on their computers should uninstall it. As is the case Windows computers on campus, CIT suggests that those Mac users wishing to run anti-virus software should choose a free solution from the Mac App Store.

For more information on the uninstall process, please visit the Intego VirusBarrier page.
