Running Sophos UTM 9 installable extensions on Windows 8

  • No changes are needed for running client-side programs with Windows 8 aside from normal installations (when compatible).

  • Sophos has been aware of Windows 8 and is working toward full compatibility with the accessory extensions of UTM 9 which are Windows installable. 
  • The IPSEC VPN installable client will work as of release version 10.31
  • Currently the Sophos Authentication Agent (SAA) and SSL VPN is compatible with UTM version 9.004
