Sophos Virus Protection for Desktops and Laptops

University of Windsor partnered with Sophos, a leading vendor in the Internet security and virus protection software space, to implement virus protection on all computers connected to campus wired network by deploying Sophos Endpoint Security and Control. 

In addition, faculty, staff and students can download a free version of Sophos Home Internet Security product for their home computers (PC or Macintosh) or their personal laptops. This software is a replacement for previously used TrendMicro's Internet Security (formerly PC-cillin) software, which is no longer available as of March 2016.

Trend Micro Internet Security (previously PC-cillin) and Office Scan is no longer available and no longer supported by I.T. Services.
