Loss of Advanced Shell in Sophos Firewall v19

From the V19 EAP 'What's New' file - "Advanced Shell – With the addition of many comprehensive logging enhancements in the GUI, and in-line with industry best-practices, access to the Advance Shell will be restricted to licensed commercial versions of the product only."

Why the distinction between licensed commercial and other licences (which I presume means Home licenses)?

  • To a point on another thread about people using Home in their HomeLab for work exploration, I read in the Reddit Sophos group (OK, not as authoritative as LuCar Toni) that if your employer has a Sophos license, they only need to talk to their Partner to get a Home Premium license. If true, this makes a lot of sense and I wish it would be confirmed.

  • It looks like this program is only available for Sophos Home Antivirus (Endpoint for Windows/Mac).

    It’s possible for any Sophos Customer to reach out to us to obtain Sophos Home Premium licenses based on the size of their organization. Originally this program was rolled out to help organizations that required employees to work from home on personal devices that didn’t have antivirus protection.
