Computers that are never on the network and that are not easy to access, e.g., laptops used away from the office, can install and update Sophos Anti-Virus via the Internet.

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

Sophos Endpoint Security and Control

What To Do

Each of these computers must be configured to download Sophos Anti-Virus, either from a Sophos website, or from a location on your company website.

Provide users who are not on your network with the following:

  • The location from which they can download Sophos Anti-Virus.
  • A copy of the Sophos Anti-Virus remote user guide.
  • The username and password they need. These are either the username and password supplied by Sophos or, if the computers will update from your company website, those supplied by you.

If you need more information or guidance, then please contact technical support.
