When talking with our business clients, we always get the question. “What AV product should I get to protect my home computer?”

The answer is easy: Sophos Home! This product is offered at the screaming price of FREE. While it doesn’t pack the power or advanced security that the paid versions offer, it’s still a great product for home use (NOT business!).


Sophos Home protects against new and developing viruses, malware, Trojans, worms, bots, potentially unwanted apps (PUAs), and the latest threats. Leveraging next-gen AI with deep learning, Sophos Home is able to detect and block never-before-seen malware before it executes.

Sophos Home kicks off with a deep scan and clean, removing the traces and remnants of malware that previous security software may have left on your PC. Sophos Home Free includes always-on antivirus, parental web filtering, and remote management of up to three devices. Sophos Home Premium goes far beyond traditional antivirus to deliver advanced, real-time protection from the latest ransomware, malicious software, hacking attempts, and more for $36/year

The free version does include some more advanced tools that enable you to protect both your home PCs and Macs – such as, Remote Security Management. This allows you to easily view and manage computer security for anyone in your life – whether they’re in the same house or in another country.
