The University of Iowa is transitioning to a new anti-virus software.

According to a UI news release, students and employees who use the current software, Symantec, will be required to switch to another product by June. UI campus Information Technology officials plan to update the new software on campus machines between now and June 30.

The UI’s contract with Symantec will end in June, and officials reviewed whether the product was the best for the university. 

The release said officials went with System Center 2012 Endpoint Protection because they believed it would save money, had more “robust reporting,” and a less intrusive interface for the user.
