The Stanford anti-malware service consists of System Center Endpoint Protection (SCEP), Microsoft's enterprise anti-malware solution. This program protects your computer from viruses, adware/spyware, and other malicious software.
For Windows 7 and 8/8.1 users, University IT also offers the Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit (EMET), a protective Microsoft tool managed by BigFix. While EMET is optional, University IT recommends installing both SCEP and EMET to protect your computer from viruses, adware/spyware, and other malicious software.
For Windows 10 users, your system is already protected with built-in Windows Defender and is compliant with the Stanford Anti-Malware service requirements. You do not have to run the anti-malware installer unless you want to install EMET for additional protection. If your computer is running BigFix, you have the option in the anti-malware installer to opt in to EMET.
