Antivirus Protection at Harvard Law School

Harvard Law School is committed to providing our students with up-to-date, secure, and reliable virus protection software. As part of this commitment, we offer all currently enrolled HLS students a free copy of Symantec Endpoint (SEP). SEP is a full-featured anti-virus and anti-malware program designed to scan all internal and external drives, as well as all incoming and outgoing e-mails and attachments.

Below are instructions for installing and configuring SEP. Also, there are instructions on how to schedule SEP to check for the latest virus definitions. This will ensure that SEP is continually updated to protect your computer from the latest virus threats. It is important to note that your computer should only have ONE anti-virus program installed. If you wish to download the free SEP client, please uninstall any anti-virus software you may already have on your machine.

Note: The SEP PC installer was tested in Internet Explorer 7 and the Mac installers were tested in Safari. We strongly recommend using Internet Explorer on the PC or Safari on the Mac when downloading SEP.


The following downloads are for HLS students only.
