Kansas State Polytechnic


K-State provides antivirus software free of charge to members of the university community. This antivirus software is a mandatory requirement for Windows and Macintosh computers connected K-State's network. Desktop computers with other operating systems (e.g. Linux) need to install their own antivirus software.
