Delivering Schools Internet Services, Online Safety, Training and Education Resources



Sophos Software

Save up to 70% on Sophos security products and protect your school from less than £1 per device per annum.

In partnership with Phoenix Software, the UK’s leading educational software vendor and other partners within the NEN, we have launched the UK Schools Software Purchasing Portal this allows ALL schools in the UK to benefit from our purchasing power and strong relationships with software vendors in the UK.

Our aim is to deliver the best possible prices for software and applications commonly or widely used in schools. Because we are ‘not for profit’ and place a high degree of importance on safe and secure access to the internet, we have launched the UK Schools Software Purchasing Portal with a fantastic deal for Sophos’ latest security suites.

We recognise that budgets are tight, so we've secured a best-price guarantee on Sophos Endpoint Security Advanced software. As well as award-winning anti-virus protection you also benefit from application control, data loss prevention and firewall protection in one easy-to-use solution.

We applied the same theory behind procuring your connectivity, buy in bulk, make savings, pass them on to our schools. Simple. Clever.

If you are a school buying on an individual basis you are likely to pay higher prices, for example a primary school buying 50 licences is likely to pay on average £13 per licence, a secondary school buying 500 licences would spend approximately £8.75 per licence (you can see already how buying in bulk is better right?). We have bought, well, A LOT of licences and we are able to pass them on to our customers for £2.95 a licence AND... the licence is valid for 3 years from the date you purchase this means an average of 98 pence per year per device!

Of course, we haven’t sacrificed quality for price and the licences come with a Enhanced Support Package which is valid for the term of the licence, so if you need some help installing it or a problem arises that you need rectifying, you benefit from true 24-hour support provided by a globally managed team every day of the year. You can contact Sophos engineers for one-to-one support by telephone, email or web, and access thousands of technical articles via the Knowledgebase on sophos.com

Only available to order through us and only available to UK schools, we are quite proud of the UK Schools Software Purchasing Portal, so much so that we are expanding our horizons, talking to other organisations about getting their products at low prices.



At one time the goal of school technical support staff was to lock down systems to prevent their use. That’s no longer the case. Today, they must protect school systems and network against a barrage of known and emerging threats to ensure their continued use. They must enable education - within unique time and resource constraints.

Keeping data safe and secure
The Sophos products can help schools to demonstrate outstanding behaviour when inspected by Ofsted inspect e-safety and e-safeguarding procedures.

The Sophos products make it easy to implement policies around the use of sensitive and confidential information, and with the Data Protection Suite, ensure that any data on laptops is stored in an encrypted manner, with this managed via one management console.

Tailored for schools
Sophos has a lower impact on machines than other antivirus products, which is especially helpful in education where some hardware can be older and less powerful, reducing the impact on the speed of the machine, leaving staff and pupils free to focus on the important stuff, like learning!

Saving you time
Sophos requires far less time to manage, than other antivirus products, as SophosLabs automatically classifies data and applications, without an administrator needing to keep on top of application checksums and manually updating them, leaving your technical support staff free to focus on the important stuff!

Saving you money
We recognise that budgets are tight, so we've secured a best-price guarantee on Sophos Endpoint Security Advanced software. As well as award-winning anti-virus protection you also benefit from application control, data loss prevention and firewall protection in one easy-to-use solution.

“The Sophos offer via SWGfL is fantastic. I was literally about to purchase through my normal channel but for the price of one year, I now have three and a half years' cover.”
