Protecting standalone computers

Some computers are never on the network and are not easy to access, for example computers that staff use at home. To protect these computers, you ask each user to install Sophos security software individually using a “standalone” installer. The software is then kept up to date via the internet. There are two possible approaches:

  • The user can download the software from Sophos. They install the software and configure it to update from Sophos.
  • You can republish the software and all subsequent updates on your own website. The user downloads the software from that website, installs it, and configures it to update from that website. For information on how to republish Sophos updates on your own website, see knowledge base article 38238.
