The use of an Antivirus tool is an important part of safeguarding the SJSU Campus Community’s computers and data. That’s why we include Sophos Antivirus on all State owned machines.

If your State owned desktop or laptop doesn’t have Sophos installed, please open a Help Ticket.

In addition, Sophos Antivirus Home is available for free for personal devices for Faculty, Staff, and Students. Sophos is compatible with Windows, Mac OS, iOS, and Android.
