By TerSL 19 Mar 2018

Did you know that as a University of Derby student you can take advantage of free downloads such as Microsoft Student Advantage (Office 365)? This package includes Word, Excel, Powerpoint, and Outlook plus many more and can be downloaded onto your personal laptops and other devices. What’s more, you can download free security software too to prevent any nasty viruses or websites from damaging your devices!

 IT Services have teamed up with Trend Micro to provide staff and students with free access to the Trend Micro Internet Security suite. The Trend Micro Internet Security suite can be used on a number of home devices and helps to protect you by:

  • preventing websites from installing dangerous software
  • defending your personal data from viruses and spyware
  • allowing you to set parental controls
  • providing a Secure Erase file shredder

To download the software for free you’ll need to register with the Trend Micro online store using your University email account. To access the store click here.
