Sophos Software Update

The current version of Valpo IT's anti-virus program will expire in March, 2011. You might have already received a warning regarding this expiration that reads:

"Sophos Anti-Virus 7, EM Library and Sophos Control Center will be retired at the end of March 2011. You should upgrade computers running these products so that your network continues to be protected."

If you would like to proceed with the upgrade now, please feel free to download and install the latest version of Sophos Anti-Virus from the IT website, located in the Downloads section (linked above).

Beginning February 16, 2011, IT will begin the upgrade process on all non-Mac office machines, including laptops. This will occur after logging into the Novell client and should only take a few minutes to complete. A reboot may be required.

People who use Mac OS X will have to manually upgrade using the software available in the Downloads section of the IT website.

If you have any questions regarding this process or comments, please contact the IT Help Desk.
