Because the Clinical School Computing Service uses Sophos Endpoint Protection on our managed computers, the Home Premium package is available free to home or personal devices to people with @medschl or @slcu email addresses. 

Register for access:

  1. Visit https://home.sophos.com/employee
  2. Use your work email address (slcu and medschl email addresses only) to verify your eligibility. NOTE: Your personal email address is to be used later for registration. 
  3. You will receive an email with a unique coupon code and asking you to register for a Sophos account.  During registration, please ensure the accuracy of your personal email as coupon codes are single-use.
  4. Follow the directions to register
  5. Download the software and install it. This can be installed on up to 10 personal Windows and Mac devices.
