Important news involving your Kaspersky Internet Security protection

Due to changes in the supplier conditions the University is no longer able to offer you free antivirus software for your personally owned devices from 1st April 2017

Any licences obtained or renewed on or before 1st April will expire on 1st June 2017.

What should you do?

To make sure your device can connect to the Brunel University network it must have an up to date, fully functional antivirus software package installed which has an on-access scanning facility (in addition to spyware protection and an active firewall).

Options for Brunel Owned Computers (devices purchased using Brunel funds)

If the computer has been purchased by Brunel University London visit our Brunel Owned Computers page.

 

Options for Personally Owned Computers

If you wish to continue using Kaspersky Internet Security you can purchase a license directly from Kaspersky or purchase another copy of Kaspersky Internet Security from retailers to obtain a new license.

If you bank online you may be able to get free Internet Security software from your bank, check their security pages for details.

If you live off-campus you may be able to get free Internet Security software from your Internet Service Provider, check their security pages for information.

You may also purchase Internet Security products from high street retailers or trusted online stores.

Note: If you decide not to continue using Kaspersky Internet Security it can be uninstalled by following these instructions.

While entry level antivirus products may pass our security checks; Brunel recommends you invest in the fuller functionality of an Internet Security product.
