During the last six months, Information Services have undertaken a review of anti-virus solutions and the decision has been made to move to Sophos, which will provide comprehensive protection against malware and ransomware, and free client software for both staff and students at home.

Information Services will update University computers during the coming weeks.

Staff can also protect their personal/home computers with Sophos Home (link available via the AppsAnywhere Portal).
