Virus Protection Software

Sophos Endpoint Security and Control is a virus protection software licensed by IT for FIT and installed on all FIT Computers.

We recommend that all FIT students, faculty and staff protect their personal computers from malicious software, inappropriate websites, and viruses by installing Sophos Home.  Refrain from installing Sophos Home on any device distributed/issued by FIT even if it is used off-campus; it will already have Sophos Endpoint Security and Control installed.

You can install Sophos Home on up to ten (10) Mac and Windows computers. Please review the system requirements and uninstall any existing antivirus software before you install the Sophos Home Software.

To install Sophos Home you will first need to create a Sophos Home account. Go to and enter your first name, last name, email address and password then follow the instructions to activate your new account. You do not need to use your FIT email or FIT password Sophos Home accounts do not sync with FIT and are not managed by IT for FIT.
