Part of the licensing agreement requires that the Uof R have reasonable controls in place to ensure that only authorized people use this product.Re-distribution of the installer or other licensed Sophos files electronically or via physical media (such as recordable CDs) is not allowed.For those systems that do not meet the licensing requirements we suggest using Microsoft Security Essentials.It is a free download that can be found at this Microsoft link MSE.Title: Configuring and Troubleshooting Sophos Anti Virus Applies to: Users of Sophos Anti Virus Section: Network Services Author: Network Technician Last updated: 20 October 2015 The University of Regina has licensed a number of Sophos antivirus products for use starting mid July of 2010.This document describes the installation and/or upgrade of the Sophos Antivirus (SAV) product.SAV running on any other platform is considered to be unsupported and subject to the policies outlined in the PC Support policy document (ie: billable and lowest possible priority).
All requests for support should be initially directed to the Computing Services IT Support Centre (ITSC).If they cannot answer your SAV questions they will escalate the issue to the appropriate support staff.Authorized users will always be able to download the latest version of the SAV software onto the target system directly from Computing Services' highly available servers.In cases where computer systems are being disposed of, this software should be uninstalled or erased prior to the disposal of the system.
The Uof R has licensed Sophos Antivirus for Windows 95/98/ME, Windows NT/2000/XP/2003/Windows 7, and OS X systems (10.6 and above) to be available for use on University owned equipment, including Evergreen machines, Evergreen opt-out equipment, machines purchased with APEA funds or any other Windows or Macintosh systems purchased with University funds.
It is assumed that Sophos will continue to run on Windows systems prior to XP SP3 but this has not been tested.
