Protect your Home Computers, Too

Jul 11, 2017 8:00:00 AM / by Chris Chirgwin


Are your computers at home as secure as those you use at the office?  In most cases, the PCs or Macs we use at home do not have the same level of protection as what businesses typically provide.

In addition to antivirus and anti-malware protection, Sophos Home also has the capability to block against inappropriate or unwanted web sites.  System requirements are Windows 7, 8/8.1 or 10 and Mac OS X 10.8, 10.9, 10.10, 10.11 or 10.12.
