About these release notes

These are the release notes for Sophos Central Server Anti-Virus for Windows Server 2008 R2 and later operating systems.

Some of the features mentioned in these release notes are only available if you have the appropriate license.

Note

You may find that you cannot yet download and use the latest version. This is because Sophos releases the software over a number of days, but publishes the release notes on the first day.

You should also read the Sophos Server Core Agent release notes. They cover the changes, resolved issues and known issues for the core components.

For information about the changes to the Sophos Server Core Agent, see the Sophos Core Agent release notes.

For information about the changes to Intercept X Advanced for Server with EDR, see the Sophos Central Server Intercept X release notes.

For improvements and new features in the Sophos Central console, see What's new in Sophos Central.

Updates that require a restart

Occasionally an update requires a restart. Sophos never forces this restart and there is no impact on protection or threat detection updates during the period before the restart.

We recommend that you schedule a restart during your next maintenance window to ensure that you are running the latest version.
