Sophos password updating
Introduction Deep Freeze provides administrators with a way to protect workstations from changes by rolling back any change made to the computer at reboot. Select Maintenance in the Event Type drop down dialog and click Add. Name the event “Sophos Antivirus” in the Event Name field. Select the frequency for the updates to occur in the Day drop down and set the start and end time for the event. Deep Freeze does not make any distinction between changes that are malicious, or changes that are desired on a workstation and this can pose some challenges in managing 3rd party products that require updates to occur on a periodic basis. Enter the commands to update Sophos in the Batch File field on the Maintenance tab. Click on the “Create” button on the toolbar and save the Workstation Install Program in a location that you will remember. Install the updated workstation install file on your workstations.Sophos is an antivirus program designed to prevent viruses from infecting your computer, as well as remove viruses that have already infected your computer.Configuring Sophos Endpoint Security clients to update with Deep Freeze Sophos Endpoint Security supports the use of a command line function that can be used to trigger antivirus updates when the workstations enter into maintenance mode.
One software fix that we didn’t see mentioned in Apple’s official security advisory emails is an apparent patch for the APFS password bug that we wrote about recently.
Scheduled are used to configure the antivirus software to update in a timeframe where Deep Freeze will not be protecting the workstations. Click on the “Create” button on the toolbar and save the Workstation Install Program in a location that you will remember. Install the updated workstation install file on your workstations.
