Dashboard Summary

When you log into your Sophos Home account, the Dashboard will show you an overview of all devices associated with your Sophos Home account. You can return to the Dashboard overview at any time by clicking on the Sophos Home logo in the top left corner or by clicking on the Dashboard button below the device’s name on each device page.

Navigation Bar

The top navigation bar contains:

  • Links for help, support, and what’s new
  • A link to the My Account settings page to change name, password or email
  • A Sign Out link to log out of the Sophos Home Dashboard

Device Summary

The Device Summary list displays the security status and statistics for all computers and devices connected to your Sophos Home account.

The icon next to the computer name is green if your computer is secured, meaning it has the Sophos Home Software installed and Automatic Virus Protection is turned on and active. A red icon indicates that the computer is not secure and may be vulnerable to attacks.

The number of Alerts for each device indicates the number of issues found that likely will require some action to solve. You can find a list of active alerts under the device summary.

The Threats Cleaned and Websites Blocked columns display the number of threats cleaned and websites blocked in the last 90 days.

The Last Update column shows the time when each device was last updated with new malware definitions and/or software upgrades. If the computer is turned on and connected to the internet, the last update time should change several times daily.

Click any of the computers in the list to see more information about that computer.

Alerts List

Alerts are important issues that may require your attention. Events that are resolved automatically by Sophos Home, for example automatic malware cleanup, are not displayed as Alerts. The Alerts List in the Dashboard displays all currently active alerts for all devices. Each Device page will show the Alerts relating to that specific device.

Once an alert has been addressed, or if you made the decision to ignore it, the alert can be removed from the Dashboard by clicking the "Ignore" to the right of the alert. Please note that the cause of the alert may still remain recorded on the Device Events List. If the file is accessed at a later date the alert will be reported again unless an exception in made (see “Setting Exceptions”).

Alerts about detected Potentially Unwanted Applications can be cleaned or allowed directly from the Alerts list in the Dashboard:

- Click “Allow” to add an exception for the Potentially Unwanted Application, which will allow the blocked application to run on the computer.

- Click Clean to remove the Potentially Unwanted Application from the computer. The Clean option only appears if the Potentially Unwanted Application can be removed by Sophos Home. If there is no Clean option for the Potentially Unwanted Application alert you must remove it manually.

Device Page

To run a remote scan of a computer, click on the Scan button below the device name.

The device page shows the Alerts and Device Events that have happened in the last 90 days. Alerts can be addressed the same way they are addressed in the dashboard (see “Alerts List”).

Device Events are filtered into 4 categories: All, Threats, Websites, Other. Every time something security-related takes place that Sophos Home can detect, for example malware is detected or a website is blocked, you will see an event on the Device page for each computer. Events are color-coded to show severity:

  • green = informational
  • orange = medium severity
  • red = important events. Pay extra attention to events in red or marked as THREAT

Device Settings and Configuration

To access your configuration settings and web filtering for a device, click on the Configure button below the name of the device on the device page.

Device name

To change the name of your device, click on the Device Name button below the name itself on the Device Settings and Configuration page. Write in the new device name then click the green Save button.

Remove device

Removing a computer or device will remove it from the Sophos Home Dashboard, but it will not remove the Sophos Home software from the computer. To fully remove Sophos Home you need to uninstall the Sophos Home software on the computer or device. See Uninstalling Sophos Home Software for more information.

To remove a device:

1. On the Device Page, click the Remove button below the name of the device.
2. You will be asked if you are sure you want to remove the device. Click OK to confirm.

Protection settings

Automatic Virus Protection scans files as they are accessed and keeps you safe by blocking malicious attacks in real-time. We recommend that you leave Automatic Virus Protection on at all times.

Potentially Unwanted Applications, also called “PUAs” or “PUPs,” are programs that may not be malicious but that you might not want on your computer, for example hacking tools, adware and spyware. Potentially Unwanted Applications Protection will block the installation or running of these kinds of programs.

Potentially Unwanted Applications protection can only be set to On if Automatic Virus Protection is also On. Turning Automatic Virus Protection Off will also turn Potentially Unwanted Applications protection Off.

Web Protection blocks websites that are known to host malware, viruses and other threats. It will also check and protect you from malicious content downloaded from the web. We recommend that you leave Web Protection on at all times.

Web Category Access

Web Category Access lets you control access to certain types of websites for each device, for example if you want to prevent children from accessing unsuitable online content.

To set a web category access restriction, click the appropriate button in the list of categories. By clicking the heading you can make that setting apply to the entire section.

If a web category is set to:

  • ALLOW: the user will be allowed full access to all websites in the category.
  • WARN: the user will see a warning page if they attempt to view a website in the category, but they have the choice to continue to the website. You can see when a user has bypassed a warning in the device event list.
  • BLOCK: the device user will be blocked from accessing any websites in this category.

If there are certain websites you trust and you want to allow but they are being blocked, you can add the URL or domain as a Website Exception. See Setting Exceptions for more information.

File and Folder Exceptions

To set an Exception means that you allow things that Sophos Home would otherwise block. You can for example exclude a certain folder from antivirus scanning, allow a user to access a certain website or let a program run that was blocked as a Potentially Unwanted Application. You set exceptions for each computer on its Device page.

Note: Adding an exception means that said file, folder, program or website will not be scanned for threats, and will make your computer less secure.

Note: Exceptions do not apply to full scans or on-demand scans. Exceptions only apply to on-access scans. On-demand exceptions work for PC, not Mac.

Antivirus Protection Exceptions

When you add an Antivirus Protection Exception it means that the file or folder will no longer be automatically scanned in real-time and protected by Sophos Home on that computer.

To enter an Antivirus Protection Exception:

  1. Make sure the ANTIVIRUS button above the exceptions list is selected.
  2. Type or copy/paste a drive, volume, file name or folder and press enter.

Tip: If you make an exception for a folder, all its subfolders will also be included. Windows folder exceptions must end with '\'. Mac folder exceptions must end with '/'. For example C:\TempAudio\Swapfile\ or /Users/Shared/TempStorage/

Website Exceptions

Adding an exception for a website means that it will no longer be automatically scanned for malware by Sophos Home or blocked by web category access settings.

To enter an website exception:

  1. Make sure the WEBSITES button above the exceptions list is selected.
  2. Enter or copy/paste the website address or domain name of the website you want Sophos Home to allow, e.g. www.sophos.com, and press enter.

Tip: It’s often better to exclude the domain, for example newsstories.co.jp, instead of a full URL such as www.newsstories.co.jp. Also, you can only make website exceptions for entire websites and not for a specific page on a site.

Potentially Unwanted Application Exceptions (PUA)

Adding a Potentially Unwanted Application Exception lets a specific program install or run that would otherwise be blocked.

To enter an potentially unwanted application exception:

  1. Make sure the APPLICATIONS button above the exceptions list is selected.
  2. Enter or copy/paste the name of the threat as listed in the Device Events List, not the file name or file path, and press enter.

Tip: To automatically make a Potentially Unwanted Application exception, click “Allow” in the alert from the Alerts list on the Dashboard.

Sophos Home Software

To protect your computers and devices you must install the Sophos Home software on each computer you want to include in your Sophos Home account. The Sophos Home software communicates with your Sophos Home account in the cloud, letting you manage, monitor and control the security settings using the Sophos Home Dashboard in a browser.

Installing Sophos Home Software

To install the Sophos Home Software, you'll first need to download a specific installer that is tied to your Sophos Home Account. See Downloading Sophos Home Software if you don't know how to do this.

To install on a Windows computer:

  1. Double-click on the downloaded file SophosInstall.exe.
  2. Follow the on-screen instructions.

To install on a Mac computer:

  1. Double-click on the downloaded file SophosInstall.zip to unzip it.

    Note: some browsers will automatically unzip a file after download and in that case, ignore this step.

  2. Double-Click on the file Sophos Installer that you can find in the folder SophosInstall after unzipping SophosInstall.zip.
  3. Follow the on-screen instructions.

When the installation has finished, open the Sophos Home software main window on the computer from the Sophos Home shield icon. On Windows, double-click the shield icon in the notification area in the toolbar.

On Mac, click the shield icon in the top menu bar then select Open Sophos Home.

Sophos Home Main Window

In the Sophos Home software Main Window you can:

  • See if your computer is secured.
  • Open the Sophos Home Dashboard in your browser.
  • Start a Full Scan of your computer.
  • See the state of your protection settings.
  • Review exceptions.
  • See and take action on Alerts.
  • Check the About box for information like the last time Sophos Home checked for updates and the software version.
  • Open up this help guide.

Full Scan

A Full Scan will scan all your hard disks for malware. Sophos Home will automatically try to remove any malware found.

Note: If your computer is password protected, you might be prompted by your operating system to type in your password to allow Sophos Home to scan.

Given the size of today's hard disks, a Full Scan may take a significant time to complete. To start a Full Scan:

  1. Open the Sophos Home main window on the computer you want to scan from the Sophos shield icon in the toolbar/menu bar.
  2. Click the scan now button to start the scan.
  3. If any malware threats are found that require your attention, the orange Alerts button will appear.
  4. When the Full Scan has completed you will see the result in the Sophos Home software main window. Any security events will also be listed in the Sophos Home Dashboard events list.

On-Demand Scanning

You can scan individual (or a group of) files, folders, programs, etc. without running a full scan. To do so, select the files, folders, programs, etc. that you want to be scanned. Right click on the selected group. A drop down menu will open with options. Select “Scan with Sophos Home.” A pop up window will show you the status of the scan and the number of threats found, if any. You can cancel the scan by clicking either on the grey x or the close button. After the scan is complete, you can close out of the scan by clicking the “close” button. If threats are found, Sophos Home will attempt to remove the malware. Alerts will be sent to the Dashboard and the Main Window and events will appear on the Dashboard and Device pages.

Type of Protection

Sophos Home goes beyond signature-based prevention of known malware. It correlates suspicious behaviors and activities using real-time threat intelligence from SophosLabs. Types of protection include:

  • on-demand malware scan
  • on-access malware scan
  • malicious URL blocking
  • phishing protection
  • web filtering
  • potentially unwanted app detection

Protection Settings

The Sophos Home software main window will let you see what the status is for each protection setting for that computer. These settings are all changed in the Sophos Home Dashboard.

Automatic Virus Protection scans files as they are accessed and keeps you safe by blocking malicious attacks in real-time. As long as Automatic Virus Protection is turned on, you are protected from the majority of threats.

Web Protection blocks websites that are known to host malware, viruses and other threats. It will also check and protect you from malicious content downloaded from the web.

Potentially Unwanted Applications (PUAs) are programs that may not be malicious but that you might not want on your computer; e.g. hacking tools, adware and spyware. Potentially Unwanted Applications Protection blocks the installation or running of these kinds of programs in real-time.

Alerts

The Alerts you can see in the Sophos Home software are issues that are likely to require your attention.An orange Alerts button will appear in the Sophos Home window when there are Alerts to review.To view alerts, click the Alerts button.

There are different types of alerts, for example:

  • Malware was detected that could not be automatically cleaned and that requires you to take manual steps to remove. Some of these alerts have a “Clean” or “Delete” button that removes the malware. If manual removal is required, the How To button gives you further instructions about how to manually remove the threat.
  • A Potentially Unwanted Application (PUA) was detected. Since these applications are "potentially" unwanted, you will need to make a decision. If the application can be removed by Sophos Home, there will be a Clean button. If the application must be removed manually, then the alert will tell you.

You can also decide to ignore an alert by clicking the close (“X”) button on the left side of the alert. Beware that this only removes the alert and the cause will still be present on the computer, reappearing in the Alerts list the next time it is detected.

Exceptions

You can view any exceptions that have been set in the Sophos Home Dashboard by clicking the Exceptions link in the Main Window. Exceptions can only be added or deleted in the Sophos Home Dashboard.

To view exceptions, click the link in the main window. Then click ANTIVIRUS, WEBSITES or APPLICATIONS to see the different types of exceptions.

Updating the Sophos Home Software

The Sophos Home software automatically checks for virus and software updates many times per day and will download any updates that may be needed in the background, keeping itself up-to-date without the user having to do anything. If you want to manually check for updates, you can select to “Update now” from the Sophos shield icon menu (in the notification area in the Windows toolbar or in the top menu bar on a Mac).

Sophos Home Software without Internet

If you do not have an internet connection, Sophos Home will continue to work. You will be unable to access the Dashboard or receive new updates, however, Sophos Home will continue to scan based on the previous updates it received.

How to uninstall Sophos Home Software

The Sophos Home software for Windows is made up of three separate components and you need to uninstall all three. Here's how:

  • On your computer, click Start > Control Panel > Uninstall a Program
  • Double-click Sophos Antivirus to uninstall
  • Confirm you want to make changes to your computer
  • Repeat this process for the Sophos AutoUpdate and Sophos Management Communications System components

  • Click on Remove Sophos Antivirus in the search results
  • Follow the on-screen prompts

How to remove malware from a Mac OS X computer

After a scan and clean, if you still see a threat identified as requiring “Manual cleanup”, it is likely contained on a backup volume or inside an archive.

These are not automatically removed by Sophos Home, as they may contain a lot of information you do not wish to delete, in addition to the detected threat.

In this case, you can attempt a manual cleanup by following the instructions below. Please contact us in the Community Forums if you have any questions or are unsure about any of the steps.

Important: If malware is detected on your computer, and Sophos Anti-Virus informs you that it must be cleaned up manually, this means that you must create a custom scan. (Full details are given in the relevant section below.)

If any threats still exist as 'Clean up manually' after performing the custom scan with the Delete option, the files are probably contained on a backup volume or inside an archive. These are not deleted by Sophos, as they probably contain a lot of information you do not wish to delete as well as the detected file.

Scenario Threat location What to do
If the file path presented includes /Library/Mail/V2/ E-Mail attachments
  1. From the Sophos Home Dashboard, temporarily turn offAutomatic Virus Protection.
  2. Open your Mail program, and delete the email with the malicious attachment whose name matches that in the file path. The most common emails have a subject line referring to an invoice, payment, or application.
  3. (Important) From the Sophos Home Dashboard, turn theAutomatic Virus Protection back on.
If the file path contains /Volume/<disk name>, and the <disk name> is not “Macintosh HD” or “Bootcamp” Mounted Disk

Sophos Home does not automatically clean and remove mounted disks / disk images since they are read-only. As well, removing the entire disk images may not be desirable.

If you are certain that the disk image can be safely unmounted and deleted, you may do so by following these steps:

  1. Go to the Desktop and locate the mounted disk with the same name as in the path. For example, if the file path contains /Volume/installer, you should see an “installer” disk icon on the desktop.
  2. Press Control and click on the mounted disk, and select “Get Info”.
  3. Make note of the file path containing “.dmg” in the “Disk image” field.
  4. Control-click the mounted disk and select Eject. Once the disk is ejected, locate the dmg file identified in Step 3 and delete the file.

Please contact us in the Community Forums if you require assistance.

If the file extension is .zip or .dmg Archive file

Sophos Home does not automatically clean up large archive files, because removing the entire file may not be desirable.

We recommend that you delete the archive if you are certain the file is safe to delete. It can be located directly using the file path identified.

Please contact us in the Community Forums if you require assistance.

If the file path contains /Backups.backupdb/ Time Machine Archive
  1. Make a note of the complete file path. E.g., /Volumes/<Time Machine Volume Name>/Backups.backupdb/<Computer Name>/YYYY-MM-DD-NNNNNN/<User Name>/Library/Caches/Java/cache/6.0/8/123456-123456
  2. From the Sophos Home Dashboard, temporarily turn off Automatic Virus Protection.
  3. In the Finder, navigate as close to this location as you can, starting from the portion. When the next level down no longer exists (or when you've found the file indicated), select 'Enter Time Machine' from the Time Machine menu item (a clock face with an arrow around the outside).
  4. Navigate to the date and time indicated by YYYY-MM-DD in the file path, and then follow the path to the detected file within Time Machine.
  5. Control or right-click the file, and select 'Delete All Backups of <detected filename>'.
  6. Click OK.
  7. (Important) From the Sophos Home Dashboard, turn the Automatic Virus Protection back on.
If the file path contains /Volumes/BOOTCAMP/ Bootcamp
  1. Make a note of the full path(s) where the threat is detected.
  2. Reboot the Mac into Windows.
  3. Using Windows Explorer, browse to the location of the threat and delete manually. Alternatively, if you have Sophos Home installed on the Windows operating system, you can run a full scan and cleanup.
If the file path contains /Library/Caches/Java Java Web Cache
  1. From the Sophos Home Dashboard, temporarily turn off Automatic Virus Protection.
  2. Go to the Finder, hold down the Option key, and from the Go menu select Library.
  3. If the Library option does not exist, select Home and then click on the Library folder.
  4. Open the Caches folder and put the containing Java folder in the trash.
  5. Empty the trash.
  6. (Important) From the Sophos Home Dashboard, turn the Automatic Virus Protection back on.
