support mac os
Sophos AV no longer supports 10.9.x, 10.10.x & 10.11.x this seems curious as Windows 7 and older versions of Windows server are still supported. I would really like to see these older version of macosx client supported but was told that Sophos AV does not provide support because Apple no longer provides security updates and therefore will not support the older versions Mac OS X. This reasoning is poor. After all these older versions were initially covered by our license, but now we lose out. Note, there have been many times in the past where applications where developed to fill a void. Especially when OS updates have been known to break a needed third party application. Sophos AV should not be 100% dependent on the OS provider since there are methods available to secure an app within older versions of OSX. The decision to keep Sophos AV depends on whether its drop of OS coverage will continue and if so, then its purpose will be less significant. On this note Sophos AV only seems to provide notes after the fact and no apparent OS support roadmap, which could at least help some organizations plan.
