Wellesley College ESET Antivirus

What is this software?

ESET is Antivirus software that replaces System Center Endpoint Protection (SCEP) for Mac and Malwarebytes Breach Remediation for Mac.
Where to find this software

We include ESET on new College-owned Macs and recently refreshed/reimaged Macs. If you do not have ESET yet, you may install ESET on your College-owned Mac computer. The installer is located on Academicstore. See instruction link below.

Installation Requirements

ESET is compatible with macOS 10.12 - macOS 10.15. Because our ESET protection software has a delayed Big Sur release, please postpone upgrading any College-owned Macs until an ESET upgrade is available.

To avoid performance impact, manually uninstall any other anti-virus programs you may have on your computer before installing ESET (including SCEP and Malwarebytes Breach Remediation). 


Instructions to install ESET on a College-owned Mac, including how to tell if you already have ESET installed.

For personally-owned Macs, we recommend the free version of Sophos Antivirus for Mac.
