Obtaining Sophos for Linux

Sophos have retired their Anti-Virus for Linux Free Edition. For personal Linux devices, we strongly advise that you look into an alternative anti-virus solution to protect your device and data. If there are any new releases of Sophos Anti-Virus for Linux Free Edition, we will update these pages accordingly.

If your device is managed by your college or department, please check with your local IT Support Staff about Sophos Anti-Virus protection for Linux, as local arrangements often apply.
