Home Computer Security

Computers are a part of daily life. We work, chat, bank, and shop with them. They store our personal and financial data and many of our precious memories in the form of photos and videos.

Sophos Home uses the same business-grade cybersecurity that thousands of businesses rely on every day. But we’ve made it easy, simple, and affordable for the home user. You can rest assured that your important personal data is secure with real-time protection from the latest ransomware, malicious software, and hacking attempts.
