UNH introduces ESET - antivirus for institutionally-owned Macs.

On March 8, UNH IT rolled out a new antivirus for institutionally-owned Macs called ESET. The previous vendor – Microsoft – discontinued use and development of their System Center Endpoint Protection (SCEP) 2012 (effective March 2019) and partnered with ESET to provide the new antivirus program to be an equivalent of SCEP. According to its website, ESET provides comprehensive Endpoint Protection for macOS with low system demands. For UNH students and privately-owned computers, UNH IT recommends Sophos as an antivirus solution.
