Antivirus Software:

Antivirus Home Use Program (AV HUP)


The DoD Antivirus Software License Agreement from McAfee allows active DoD employees and authorized government contractors to utilize the antivirus software for personal device protection. Home use of the antivirus products will not only protect personal PCs, but will also potentially lessen the likelihood of malicious threats being introduced to the workplace and compromising DoD networks. DISA Home Use is now being offered to government employees and defense contractors with an approved .mil email address. 


McAfee Internet Security


 As a member of DoD government and defense contractor community, you can now take advantage of a free 1-year subscription to McAfee Internet Security for your PC or MAC at no cost.  This subscription gives you proactive security for your home PC by preventing malicious attacks and keeping you safe while you surf, search, and download files online. McAfee's Internet Security service also continuously delivers the latest software, so your protection is never out-of-date. 

By installing McAfee Internet Security on your home system, you'll not only be protecting your PC from malicious threats, but you'll also help your organization strengthen its IT security against transferable viruses and spyware.

Note: Please be advised, DISA Home Use licensing for McAfee Internet Security is for personal/privately purchased devices only. Do not install McAfee Internet Security on Government Furnished Equipment (GFE).
