If you’re a System Administrator at work, then you’re definitely IT support at home as well. In fact, if you’re reading an article on Naked Security then you’re almost certainly the least non-technical user in your family, and that means you’re IT support at home too.
And that makes you a sysadmin.
Home for Thanksgiving? You can relax just as soon as you’ve fixed the printer. Mystery phone call at 11pm? Somewhere there’s a PDF that just won’t open. About to walk out the door? This iPhone needs a new battery, the screen is cracked and it seems to be running really slow – is the internet broken?

Cool! I really like Sophos Home and I am already premium. Can this code also be used to add another 12 months of premium to an existing account ?
We checked with our colleagues who look after the back-end system, and…
…I am afraid you can’t (yet) buy renewals in advance.
AFAIK we want to make it possible but at the moment you can’t top up early.
Sorry about that, but thanks for your kind words!
What does “ten devices, managed from your computer” mean? Can the software be installed on 10 computers/phones that are not networked?
The devices you protect need to have internet access (to get updates, configuration settings and so forth), as does the computer from which you manage them (because your management console is hosted by us in the cloud).
But the devices don’t need to be on the same LAN. They can be upstairs, next door, in the next town, or on the other side of the planet.
They just need to be connected up to your subscription. Lots of people use Sophos Home Premium to look after cybersecurity on computers belonging to their mum/cousin/friend/son/grandfather…
… they find it saves them a lot of driving --)
can i pay via ideal?
As far as I know it’s credit card or PayPal.
