Antivirus Software for Home Use

Sophos distributes many different products, some of which aren't recommended or even unable to be used at home. At UTHSC we use Sophos Endpoint Security, which is enterprise software and therefore not recommended for home use.

Sophos does offer personal use antivirus software which is available, along with a number of other free solutions, on our main antivirus page.
