To establish requirements that must be met by all computers connected to eCuras lab networks to ensure effective virus detection and prevention.
This policy applies to all eCuras lab computers that are PC-based or utilize PC-file directory sharing. This includes, but is not limited to, desktop computers, laptop computers, file/ftp/tftp/proxy servers, and any PC based lab equipment such as traffic generators.
All eCuras PC-based lab computers must have eCuras’s standard, supported anti-virus software installed and scheduled to run regularly. Also, the anti-virus software and the virus pattern files must be kept up-to-date. Virus-infected computers must be removed from the network until they are verified as virus-free. Lab Admins/Lab Managers are responsible for creating procedures that ensure anti-virus software is run at regular intervals and computers are verified as virus-free. Any activities with the intention to create and/or distribute malicious programs into eCuras’s networks (e.g., viruses, worms, Trojan horses, e-mail bombs, etc.) are prohibited under the Acceptable Use Policy.
Refer to eCuras’s Anti-Virus Recommended Processes to help prevent virus problems.
Noted exceptions: Machines with operating systems other than those based on Microsoft products are accepted at the current time.
