Otago Sophos Anti Virus Software Site

This is the web site where current University of Otago Students, Staff and Departments can access the installers for Sophos Anti Virus. These versions are customised to update from the Otago servers. The installer packages for University owned machines includes the Sasafras K2 client application which is used to manage software licensing requirements.

All devices that currently have Sophos installed are required to reinstall. This is to ensure continued operation of Sophos Anti Virus as existing servers have reached end of life and the new servers offer better growth and scalability.

ITS will endeavour to contact device owners who have previously downloaded Otago Sophos via email with a link to this page. Given the size of this task it is likely some will slip through in which case Sophos on Windows devices will warn users that it is not up to date and they will need to install again from this site. OS X users may or may not get a warning (depending on what version is installed) and they also will need to install from this site.

The OSX installer can be found here and the Windows installer can be found at this link.
