Managed Antivirus

The Managed Antivirus service provides the ability for technical support groups on campus to manage and monitor Sophos Anti-Virus clients installed on the Windows and Mac systems in their areas.

IT Services provides a Sophos Console that support personnel can use to adjust protection policies, initiate scans, and clean up items in quarantine.


  • Centrally supported infrastructure enables local management of antivirus software.
  • Access control ensures that console managers only have access to their own groups.
  • Antivirus protection can be kept active and properly configured.
  • Virus definitions and client versions can be kept up-to-date.
  • Protection against viruses, spyware and adware, rootkits and suspicious files and behavior is provided.
  • Support personnel can clean up quarantined files and schedule scans.
