Sophos Antivirus

What is Sophos?

Sophos is the antivirus that Husson provides for all staff, student, and faculty machines.

Sophos runs by itself in the background of most Husson machines. You do not need to start Sophos or interact with it in any real fashion. In most cases, the only reason you should even know it is there is because of a warning message.

Sophos Available for Free Home and Personal Use

A free, fully-functional version of Sophos is available to all Husson faculty, staff, and students for their own personal use.
