Prerequisites – Your organization must be a subscribed user of a SOPHOS Endpoint Protection product.

You are eligible for a free license of Sophos Home Commercial Edition and its premium features for as long as your company participates in this program and you are employed by a participating company. If your company no longer participates in the program or you are no longer employed by that participating company when your license to Sophos Home Commercial Edition is up for renewal, your license to Sophos Home Commercial Edition will not be renewed, and instead your license will automatically revert to Sophos Home Free. With that transition to Sophos Home Free you will enjoy a level of protection, but you will no longer enjoy the premium features of Sophos Home Commercial Edition. See Sophos’s website for additional details.

Please note that the Home Commercial Edition is not connected in any way, managed, or reports to your work organization.
