Cardiff University approved anti-virus software

Before any student-owned Windows or Mac computer is allowed to connect to the network, Cardiff University-approved anti-virus software must be installed with agreement that automatic updates will be taken. This is to protect both the student-owned computer and other users of the Cardiff University corporate network. 

Installation of anti-virus software on other Operating Systems (e.g. Linux, BSD) is not a requirement; it is, however, strongly recommended.

Computers not running Cardiff University-approved anti-virus software will not be permitted to connect to the ResLAN network.

You are required to keep your anti-virus product up-to-date. If we detect symptoms indicating that your machine may be infected with a virus we will immediately take action WHICH MAY INCLUDE DISCONNECTING YOUR COMPUTER FROM THE NETWORK.

It is your responsibility to remove viruses and secure your operating system.
