Looking for an antivirus package for your home machines that won’t cost the earth and doesn’t nag you all the time to upgrade? Then you need to take a look at the new Sophos Home service. This new product brings commercial-grade security to the home users – both Windows and Mac – for a low price.
Setup couldn’t be easier.
- Go to https://home.sophos.com
- Log into your account from the Windows or Mac systems you want to protect (up to 10 systems per account) and download the installer file.
- Install the software.
- You’re done!
Sophos Home not only protects your systems from viruses, but is also features a built-in web protection that blocks websites that are known to install malware. Also included is an unwanted app detection feature that is always on the lookout for unwanted apps that might be trying to install themselves onto your system.
Another excellent feature of the Sophos Home service is that you get access to an online dashboard that displays information about all the systems protected. From here you can check and change software settings, as well as run remote scans for viruses.
For the first time, many of the same real-time protection technologies available in Intercept X, our market-leading endpoint protection product for business users, are now available in Sophos Home. Now you have the same level of protection trusted by leading banks, governments, and businesses worldwide.
I’ve been using and test Sophos Home Premium for already a year now and I’ve found it to be easy to use, reliable, and not heavy on system resources. It’s also picked up on every bit of malware, with the amount of traveling I do, and that I’ve been able to throw at it. And to top that off, Sophos Home Premium will never nag you to upgrade as it will run its self.
If you’re looking for a security product, especially if you have multiple systems to protect (and doubly so if you have Windows and Mac systems), then Sophos Home Premium is well worth investigating.
Secure any computer from any computer
With Sophos Home, you can easily view and manage computer security for anyone in your life. It doesn’t matter if they’re in the same house or in another country. And it works for both Macs and PCs.
