For the administration of normal work stations in the institution network it is useful for institutions of the RWTH Aachen to install an indivudal server with the Sophos Enterprise Console. This also entails the installation of the component Sophos Update Manager (SUM), which allows for an automatic download of the latest updates from the server of the IT Center and provides them in the local network. With the Enterprise Console you have central control over the installation, configuration and updates of the Sophos Anti-Virus software on the work stations. Another advantage is the reduction of network traffic on the instution uplink, since here only one server searches for updates and subsequently redistributes them in the institution network. Access to the Enterprise Console updates requires a user authentication.

Please note:


The Sophos Enterprise Console is only available for institutions. The update paths for the Sophos Enterprise console require an authentication. In order to get a corresponding account for your institution, please contact the IT-Servicedesk.
