Security

Discover tips and steps you need to take to protect your data, your electronics, and your identity.

Duo Security

IS&T provides access to Duo, a two-factor authentication application that leverages landlines and smartphones as an "Approve" or "Deny" system to identify users. Duo is a self-service web application that is being used for Touchstone-enabled web applications at MIT.

Virus Detection and Prevention

Make sure you are running virus protection software that will guard against most computer infections. IS&T provides Sophos virus protection software, free of charge, to the MIT community.

 

Spam Filtering

To reduce the amount of spam coming into our inboxes, IS&T has put filters in place on MIT's email system.

Most malware attacks occur through a combination of spam and compromised web pages. Interacting with spam can put your personal information at risk as well as download a virus to your machine that may spread to other computers on the network.
