Sophos are distributed in two forms: Standalone and Network Installations. Network installation is based on Windows 2000 or above domains. Multiple subnets and mobile and home users will encounter difficulties with that. In those cases, standalone installation may be a better choice. But Sophos access acount and password have to be distributed to each user.
