I'm a big fan of Sophos from using the enterprise product going back 18 years ago. However i'm not sure i'm keen on having to use a web based portal for home use but trying it out to see how it goes. Currently I use Kaspersky free through Barclays but sometimes that can be a pain in the ar$e for being overbearing trying to install software.

U get nothing for free. I would avoid!!!!!!

I'd advise not posting in the 'freebies' section of the site in future then.
Great may give it a try
Loads of programs are free, especially anti-virus software. You'd be daft to pay for it (for home use) ;)

Used in education and other govt departments too.
I have been using this free antivirus on a windows netbook and a tablet ( desktop has Kaspersky). There is a free Sophos Android app as well. Unlike alot of the free antivirus, there are no nagging screens telling you to purchase an upgrade. We used Sophos at a couple of companies I worked for so it is mainly aimed at business I suspect.
I have been using Avast for the last decade and on the whole I've been pretty happy with it - how does this stack up against it and is it worth taking a look?

very tempted but will stick to pfsense

for anyone wanting to use this, you will need minimum 2 network cards - one for WAN and other for the LAN
Not the most convenient software to use ... "a separate, dedicated computer is needed, which will change into a fully functional security appliance. Just right for the spare PC you have sitting in the corner!"
I don't trust home routers at all, full of bugs and backdoors, I have been using this firewall for around an month and it does so much more then my simple home router.

The firewall built into routers is more than adequate for the home.
You win the comedy post of the day award 21/03/16.
Congratulations :D

How little you appear to know about routers. If in this day and age you think your computers security depends on a software firewall you need to do some research (or get a Mac). However, if you think your computer is at risk of poisoning other people's computers may I suggest you stay well away from dubious websites (or get a Mac).
This so shouldn't be cold. A free firewall for a dedicated PC isn't bad. Shame we are not paranoid enough to wonder what we are sending out compared to what is trying to get into ourhome networks. Hot from me! :)

OSX is still much less popular than Windows, hence less viruses and malware designed for it, but it's just question of time.
I've been hearing this same old, same old for close on 30 years. It still hasn't happened. At best I vaguely recall about one failed attempt every year and not one that has spread beyond one computer. OSX runs on very strict privileges, if a Mac gets something unwanted on it, it's because the user authorised it. There is no where for a Mac "proof of concept" virus or trojan horse, etc., to escalate to. This is why Mac's are so damned secure and offer a first line of defence for the American armed services.
Wikipedia states "Only a few major viruses have hit Macs in the last years. The difference in virus vulnerability between Macs and Windows is a chief selling point, one that Apple uses in their "Get a Mac" advertising."
There's no bomb proof system, jus look at last dodgy Xcode fiasco. IOS apps approved by Apple containing malware. End user is always the weakest link.

Even Mac's are getting viruses and malware these days!

Not so you'd notice. I think you can count the total number of attempts (nothing currently live) at infecting Mac OSX on one hand. I've used PC's and Macs since the first Mac computer and I have never seen malware, spyware or viruses on any of my companies, friends or families Mac's. PC's were once quite another matter. I now use the latter exclusively for gaming; apart from Windows X, I have installed Steam, uPlay, Origin, Creative Labs (with reluctance) and nVidia software and essential motherboard drivers, nothing else.

All work, browsing, messaging, e-mailing, etc., I do on Mac's and iPad's. I don't even bother with OSX's firewall any longer as my router is bullet-proof...Not a single attempt to probe my ports has been made from beyond the router to my Mac network.
matth9999
No upgrade nags, the web interface for configuration is a bit unusual and not that well featured - cannot configure the "full" scan, so if you have dual boot, it will scan anything accessible.
Unlike many others, does not appear to offer a "scan with" option (for Bitdefender free, this is how you scan a specified area).
Unlike Bitdefender free, Sophos does offer exceptions.

Now I can see the scan with option ... sure it wasn't there before!!!

Thank you
Uridium
Sadly doesn't support my OS (Win2012 R2, yes an odd OS to run at home I know but a long story) but then again very few free AV solutions do so heated as this is still a decent Home AV option for most
The UTM version runs fine on 2012 R2, but it needs you to install the UTM on something and activate the AV element first though.

Special attention really should be made of "NOTE: The Sophos XG Free Home Use firewall contains its own operating system and will overwrite all data on the computer during the installation process. Therefore, a separate, dedicated computer is needed, which will change into a fully functional security appliance."
Cheers though.
Sophos XG firewall is a completely separate product to Sophos home, as are Sophos Antivirus for Linux Free Edition, Sophos Mobile Security for Android etc.
Your post makes no sense.
The clue is in the title, sorry you missed that.

Sorry my bad, I should have made it clearer they were separate products...

Yey! But I hope to cancel my trial in 30 days, hope I won't forget. :(

Don't have to cancel, it auto expires. If you want to use it you have to apply to continue after the trial.

So I get the socks, and rest back. Nothing else to do. Yey!
Tried again this morning and can sign up so they must've added more pairs - when I tried yesterday it had a big diagonal yellow banner across the page saying they had stopped because of the massive response...

Definite heat...

The real value of this is highlighted by this:
Full Mac protection from viruses, Trojans and worms
Stops all threats, even those designed for Windows. Not only is your computer safe—the people running PCs you send files to are safe from threats too.

Basically, it is more designed to stop the propagation of Windows viruses, either from attachments sent by Windows users and spambots or those who have Windows installed via Bootcamp and believe that just because they are running on Apple hardware that they are also immune from viruses.

Not installing this. I remember the first version was a bit of a disaster and caused more problems than it solved. This won't stop Trojans or malware, either, which is a bigger issue for OSX than viruses.

If its an OS, its game for malware - just because the machine is the minority doesn't mean it wont be attacked... as apple spreads so does the malware.
Great! I'm an avid Mac user, even though threats don't bother me one single bit as they don't affect Mac users as much as Windows, but it's nice to have a good solid AV client in the background just in case.

And on a plus note, it's much better than ClamX AV, it's happily handling my 400,000+ files with ease!
martinhb
They do. If you have access to licenses then log in, select "Anti-virus and Firewall for windows" under the blue enterprise bit and away you go. If you do not have licenses you can buy them but only a minimum of three.

True, but at £112.50 for SCS for 1 year it's hardly priced within reach of the home user.
Big shame really as it's a nice product that would otherwise get my recommendation for clients.

Ahh, the old "security through obscurity" Mantra

Mac's can, and do get virus's - why? Because they run Linux with a pretty front end on it, Linux has a fairly decent sized installed base, certainly worth going after in the eyes of those that create such malware.

I'm not anti/pro anything when it comes to computers I run Windows, OSX, Linux and Unix on several machines, they are all insecure in some way.

OSX is an officially certified UNIX variant, it started out life as NeXTSTEP which in turn had its roots in the BSD's, so it's far from being "Linux with a pretty front end on it".

As for viruses, malware etc. on Macs, yes they are possible and yes they do exist. However, the fundamental differences in security model from the likes of Windows makes it very unlikely unless you do something silly (like click on the link for fr33 Pr0n....download the fr33 Pr0n app.....and install it). Even if you are infected the damage such things can do are limited, unless you do something monumentally stupid.
