Service Description


In order to stay abreast of threats of viruses, worms or the like, the RWTH Aachen acceded to the federal treaty between NRW and the Sophos GmbH enterprise in June 2006. Since then, the IT Center supplies the virus scanner 'Sophos Anti-Virus' (SAV) to all institutions of the RWTH Aachen, the FH Aachen as well as all members of both institutions free of charge - also for private use.

The software is available for download in the RWTH network.

In addition to the actual virus scanner, institutions can also apply the Sophos Enterprise Console for the central administration of the virus scanner int he local network, as well as 'Sophos Puremessage' for SPAM- and virus protection on e-mail servers.
