This article details the changes that will happen to Sophos Anti-Virus (SAV) for Mac over the coming months as we approach the retirement of version 8, scheduled for 30 April 2014.

Applies to the following Sophos product(s) and version(s)

Sophos Endpoint Security and Control

Operating systems
Mac OS X  all versions 

What will happen?

What will happen depends upon the setup of your system. Refer to whichever of the following sections applies to your setup.

For more information about Sophos licenses and whether you have multiple or single subscriptions available, see 

Managed endpoints and access to multiple subscriptions

If you have licenses that support multiple subscriptions in Sophos Enterprise Console (SEC) you currently have access to both v8 and v9, and where possible should upgrade all Mac endpoints to v9 at the earliest opportunity.

Important: OS X 10.4 and 10.5 are not supported by v9 and will no longer be fully supported by Sophos after the end of April 2014 (some subscriptions to V8 will remain in place until July 2014) . For continued protection these endpoints should have their OS X installation upgraded as soon as possible.

Starting in June 2014 we will re-subscribe the current V8 “Recommended” subscription to V9 Recommended, in July we will move “Previous” and “Oldest” to a V9 subscription.

Any endpoints running OS X 10.4 or 10.5 will remain on v8 without updates as these OS X versions are not supported by Sophos or by the v9 version of the product.

Managed endpoints and access to a single subscription

If you are running licenses where only one version of the endpoint is available you will have all v8 endpoints upgraded to v9 before the end of May 2014.

Any endpoints running OS X 10.4 or 10.5 will remain on v8 without updates as these OS X versions are not supported by Sophos or by v9 version of the product.

Standalone installations or running the Home Edition of SAV for Mac

During May 2014 after v8 has retired we will migrate all endpoints running v8 to v9.

Any endpoints running OS X 10.4 or 10.5 will remain on v8 without updates as these OS X versions are not supported by Sophos or by v9 version of the product.

Note: any endpoints running SAV v8 on OS X 10.4 and 10.5 will show failed updates after v8 retirement, it will also state in the updating logs that the version is no longer supported.
