Trend Micro license-renewal meeting Wednesday, Feb. 18

Update: Last-minute date change from Friday, Feb. 13, to Wednesday, Feb. 18

K-State’s license for Trend Micro antivirus/security software expires March 31, so we are in the process of exploring renewal options. It is not an option to switch to a different antivirus vendor at this point, given the complexity and magnitude of converting. However, K-State does have the option of renewing for either one year or three years, and Trend Micro is offering attractive pricing for a three-year renewal.

A campus meeting to discuss the renewal options is scheduled 1:30-2:30 p.m. 9:30-10:30 a.m.Friday, Feb. 13 Tuesday, Feb. 17 Wednesday, Feb. 18, in Union 213. Harvard Townsend, chief information security officer, will facilitate a discussion of the options, how a decision will be made, and considerations for Macintosh support. K-State’s Symantec license for Macs expires in October 2009, and Trend Micro is about to release a native Mac antivirus product.

This meeting is geared toward those who support Trend Micro software installations on campus computers rather than end users of the software, but any K-Stater is welcome.  If you have any questions, contact your SIRT representative or Harvard Townsend (harv@k-state.edu).
