The world is changing, and technology is changing with it. It seems recent to us adults when we think about the launch of the original iPhone, in 2007, however this means that no child in our primary schools today have experienced life before iPhones! As another example, every student in school today will have been born into a world containing both Xboxes and Playstations (launched in 2001 and 1995 respectively).
Schools that have decided to not take up the new Sophos Anti-virus contract should by now have installed a new Anti-virus product. The current Sophos Licenses expired on the 10th June 2019.
Schools that have not bought the new Sophos contract must remove the Sophos Anti-virus from the school’s desktops, laptops and servers. Schools ICT can arrange a technician to attend, please note there is a cost associated with this. (School technicians can uninstall during normal school visits time permitting). Please get in touch for a quote.
