Turn Sophos Live Protection options on or off

Important If a management console is used to administer Sophos Endpoint Security and Control on this computer, it may override any changes you make here.

If you are a member of the SophosAdministrator group, you can turn the Sophos Live Protection options on or off:

  1. Click Home > Anti-virus and HIPS > Configure anti-virus and HIPS > Configure > Sophos Live Protection.
  2. In the Sophos Live Protection dialog box:
    • To turn the sending of file data to Sophos on or off, select or clear the Enable Live Protection check box.
    • To turn the sending of file samples to Sophos on or off, select or clear the Automatically send sample files to Sophos check box.

      This option is available only if you have already selected Enable Live Protection.

Note

When a file sample is sent to Sophos for online scanning, the file data is always sent with the sample.
