Support for the Sophos Antivirus solution will end on 20.07.2023 when the existing framework agreement expires. The client has already been uninstalled on business devices with automated software distribution and replaced by a successor solution. For systems that are not managed by the LRZ or an IT service group (e.g. private devices), the Sophos client must be uninstalled by the users themselves. The LRZ has provided corresponding instructions for Windows and Mac. In future, Windows Defender from Microsoft, which is already included in the operating system, can be used for Windows client systems. For Apple systems, the XProtect included in the operating system is also recommended.

Affinity offers a powerful software suite in the field of illustration and image editing. LMU students and employees can use Affinity Suite V2 on private devices for official and student purposes at LMU free of charge.
