Your current license for SOPHOS with Oxfordshire County Council runs out at the end of March.
It is important that you make alternative arrangements by 31 March 2017
The basic Sophos package is available from Phoenix through the South West Grid for Learning (SWGFL) @ £3.45 per device providing protection for 3 years; multiplied by the number of devices you need covering. By going direct to the supplier, provision can be made for additional features school by school.
SWGFL offer Sophos Endpoint Protection Advanced. Sophos Endpoint Protection makes it simple to secure your Windows, Mac and Linux systems against malware and advanced threats, such as targeted attacks. Next-generation endpoint protection integrates innovative technology like malicious traffic detection with real-time threat intelligence from Sophos Labs to help prevent, detect and remediate threats with ease. The service can also add web filtering, application control, device control right into the lightweight endpoint agent, so your organisation’s policies are enforced anywhere your users go.
SWGFL can also offer Sophos’ new Next-Generation Anti-Exploit, Anti-Ransomware, and Root Cause Analysis product - Sophos Intercept X. This adds next-generation signatureless technologies on top of endpoint security to give complete, layered protection.

After March, your current SOPHOS software will not stop working immediately, but there will be no support and it will only be as good as the last Virus covered. This means the longer it is left the more vulnerable your network will become.
