Middlebury's Information Security workgroup promotes the use of anti-virus software on all computers. We make Sophos available for all Faculty, Staff and students across both Middlebury and Monterey campuses. This page has links where individuals may download a single copy of this software for their own personal use. Please note that this copy will only be good for a single year and that you will need to reload the software with each annual update.
If you have an Apple Macintosh computer and would like Sophos Anti-virus protection for home use you may obtain it from their web site. This product is not supported by the college help desk and will not receive updates from the college. This is a Sophos supported product but will meet any anti-virus requirements the college has for its network. You may obtain Sophos for the Mac at this site. Click here.
