macOS

Apple Gatekeeper security built into macOS makes installation of non-App Store titles a bit of a challenge. To install our instance of Sophos you must do so without a web download. This requires mounting a campus based network volume. If your are off campus you will need to use our VPN to mount this volume.

1. be on campus or connected with our VPN

2. hold down the command-K keys, type the following:

smb://sum.williams.edu/sophos

3. click 'Connect'

4. supply your username (this means do not include @williams.edu) and password

5. double-click the directory corresponding to your role (facstaff or student)

6. double click to mount the corresponding DMG in your downloads directory

7. lastly, run the installer within.
