Schools need advanced antivirus and security products, but at affordable prices.
Some free or bundled antivirus products will protect devices from common malware. However, advanced products have more features, particularly for Microsoft Windows.
We’ve worked closely with Phoenix Software and Sophos to bring schools Sophos Endpoint Protection antivirus at a heavily discounted rate: our academic pricing means schools can save up to 70% and protect users, devices and data from £1.15 per device per year.
Sophisticated protection, made simple
Sophos Endpoint Antivirus delivers sophisticated functionality coupled with a simple, intuitive user experience.
Sophos Endpoint Protection can be managed in the cloud, or on-premise, giving you the flexibility to choose what will suit you best.
Using Sophos Central for cloud management, deployment is straightforward: there’s no server to install and configure, so you can be up and running in minutes. And the cloud-based management console is designed with simplicity in mind, so you don’t need to be security expert to use it.
The on-premise Sophos Endpoint Protection is also easy to deploy, and Sophos can provide automatic migration tools from other products.
Sophos Enpoint Protection includes default policies that are configured to balance protection, usability and performance – for simple security that works right out of the box.
Centralised Security Management
Both the cloud (Central Endpoint Protection) and on-premise (Endpoint Protection Advanced) versions of Sophos Antivirus allow you to manage your security centrally.
With Central Endpoint Protection, Sophos Central provides a single interface through which all Sophos products can be managed. Endpoint Protection, Server Protection, Sophos Mobile, encryption and even firewalling are connected to Sophos Central.
With Endpoint Protection Advanced, the Enterprise Console allows you to create groups, set up policies, find devices and deploy the software to protect them. You can also check the status of devices at any time, and perform clean up processes if a device does become infected.
High Performance Antivirus Software
Sophos Endpoint Protection is tuned for the best performance. The lightweight agent keeps users and devices secure without slowing them down. Protection updates are small so they dont overload network connections and endpoints.
Industry Leading Virus and Malware Protection
Sophos Endpoint Protection Antivirus blocks malware and infections by identifying and preventing the techniques and behaviours used in almost every exploit.
Sophos Endpoint Protection Antivirus doesn’t just rely on signatures to catch malware, which means it catches zero-day threats without adversely affecting the performance of your device. So you get protection before those exploits even arrive.
By correlating threat indicators, Sophos Endpoint Protection Antivirus can block web and application exploits, dangerous URLs, potentially unwanted apps, and malicious code from ever touching your endpoints.
Sophos received the highest score for protection accuracy, legitimate accuracy, and total accuracy, noting that “Sophos Intercept X Advanced blocked all of the public and targeted attacks”.
