Minimum security standards for Norm Asbjornson College of Engineering network connected devices are the Montana State University Technology Management Standards. These standards require desktops and laptops to have McAfee Antivirus, Ivanti (formerly LANDesk) for Windows devices, JAMF for Apple devices, and Spirion (formerly Identity Finder) clients installed and used. Servers need to be registered with Montana State University Server Inventory Application.

Departments and Centers in the Norm Asbjornson College of Engineering are expected to maintain inventory of minor computer property which would include desktops, laptops and servers less than $5,000. These inventories can be used to check compliance with MSU Technology Management Standards.
