  • Sophos - free anti-virus software


    In this climate of daily attack from computer viruses, it is important that the University keeps its computers protected and up-to-date.  At Brookes we use  Sophos on all staff and student computers to protect against viruses. If a member of staff you will know your Brookes computer is protected with the latest version of Sophos if your PC task bar has a little blue shield displayed. sophos shield

    It is also important that any personal devices that access the University network and systems are protected with anti-virus software.
