You have, as Sophos' (or any other AV vendor's) customer a right to
service. Commercial AV vendors are earning big money nowadays and should
give the service that they've promised their customers, and for which
each customer has paid. Never be shy of claiming what you've signed up
for. As far as Sophos goes, experience in the past has shown me that the
service is downright good. No, I don't pay Sophos a cent, Sophos doesn't
pay me a cent. And I don't speak for their distributors, some of those
are *not* good.
