Sophos enterprise solutions updating
The Sophos products incorporate new architecture to address the security needs of medium-to-large enterprises, which inevitably have complex IT infrastructures.
It is therefore urgent to move all Macs to SAV9 by April 2014.The license purchased by my employer allows the use of the software by employees on their personal computers at home. Unfortunately, although it is in many respects a very nice program, the basic version of SAV does not provide for automated updating over the Internet, instead a tedious manual process is required.I have written a program, for the Windows implementation of the Sophos Anti-Virus, that automates this manual process.This program determines the installed version of SAV, checks whether there are new virus definitions (IDE files) available on the Sophos web site, downloads and installs them if appropriate.Note, although the program does download and install new IDE files, it is still necessary to manually install new versions of the program at least every 3 months. The program is licensed under the GNU Public License and is provided with no warranty.
