DISA renews antivirus software license agreement helping teleworkers keep machines safe at home

FORT GEORGE G. MEADE, Md. (AFNS) --

Recognizing a need, the Defense Information Systems Agency and the Department of Defense have renewed their antivirus home use programs.

Antivirus Home Use Program
The DoD Antivirus Software License Agreement with McAfee allows active DoD employees to utilize the antivirus software for home use. Home use of the antivirus products will not only protect personal PCs, but will also potentially lessen the threat of malicious logic being introduced to the workplace and compromising DoD networks. Contractors are excluded from using the software at home or on any other system not belonging to the DoD.

McAfee Internet Security
As a member of the DoD, employees can now take advantage of a free one-year subscription to McAfee Internet Security for your PC or MAC.

This subscription gives users proactive security for their home PC by preventing malicious attacks and keeping the user safe while surfing, searching and downloading files online. McAfee’s security service also continuously delivers the latest software so protection is never out of date.

By installing McAfee software on your home system, users will not only be protecting their PC from malicious threats, but also helping their organization(s) strengthen its information technology security against transferable viruses and spyware.

How to download McAfee Internet Security
Navigate to the website for your applicable platform, either PC or MAC, listed below. In addition, enter the associated “Company Code” in the appropriate field on the webpage:
