Sophos Home is a free Internet security product that protects Windows and Mac computers from malware and malicious web sites. Sophos Home can be installed on up to 10 Mac and Windows computers, where they can then be managed from a single account on the Sophos Home website. In addition to standard definitions based malware detections, Sophos Home also utilizes signature--less behavioral--based heuristics, a Host Intrusion Protection System (HIPS), malicious url blocking, and web filtering.
What I really like about Sophos home, though, is the ability to manage all of the computers under your account from one online dashboard.. This also allows you to not only install and manage Sophos Home on your own network, but also on computers for family members at other locations. Once someone installs the client on their computer, you can then manage their security and see security alerts from the dashboard. Now when your parent or family member calls you and says that their antivirus detected something, you can quickly login to the dashboard and see what was found.
In order to use Sophos Home, you first need to register a free account at the Sophos Home website, which can be reached using the download button above. Once you register an account you can login and click on the Add Device button to retrieve a unique installation URL for your account. This link can then be used by you or family members to install Sophos Home and automatically have their computer's added to your dashboard.
For those looking for an antivirus and security protection solution where you can manage multiple computers form one dashboard, you could not go wrong with Sophos Home.
