What are the benefits of installing Symantec Endpoint Protection?

Viruses are malicious programs that run on a computer. They can take control by being:

  • Destructive: compromising computer files; allowing outsiders to access your files; replicate itself through email (using your address book) or through the network; etc.
  • Non-destructive: consuming computer resources making a computer slow; annoying pop-ups or error messages; etc.

By installing Symantec AntiVirus and ensuring the virus definitions are kept up-to-date, students will be less likely to fall victim to computer viruses.
