Q: How can I view the Sophos Scan Log

Starting July of 2021, IS&T has migrated to a new version of Sophos called Sophos Central. MIT users have until the summer of 2022 before the old version will stop receiving updates. This page references the legacy version of Sophos. You can see documentation for the new Sophos Central here and download the newest version of Sophos here.


In addition to the Sophos Quarantine Manager, you can also view a log of scan results from an on demand scan.

On a Mac

To access the log, open Sophos and right click on the scan you want to view. You should see a pop up with a choice to "View Scan Log"

If you click on "View Scan Log" the log file opens, to view where it is located on your computer click on "Reveal" in the upper left. That will bring up a finder window showing the folder where the log file is located.
