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
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.
