Sophos from yhgfl is much better proceed than it was from LLN. About the same cost for 5 years as it was per year. If you buy in now they're is only 3 years until the next renewal.
Since changing the url is still been working perfectly.
Is there an official Sophos url to point it to in order to get updates maybe? You could pop that in and continue getting them, much like I switched our WSUS server from getting updates from the LLN WSUS and now point straight to Microsoft
our sophos is now moved over to the YHGFL from LLN and as far as I am aware there are no issues with fetching the updates. we just changed the url to their own update server.

even schools who switched to ict4 leeds use yhgfl for sophos lln have a logon for that you use so its basically the same as going to thgfl for sophos direct except the url/username/password is different

I've ordered it today from YHGfL - its a one off £190 which lasts until 10/03/2016 and includes 40 home user licenses for staff. Its even cheaper if you use YHGfL for internet as well.
All schools need to be aware of a recent safeguarding issue at a Leeds school due to the filtering being poor and allowing children to be able to communicate with adults and being sent obscene materials. This has been on the BBC website:
BBC News - Primary school pupils sent 'obscene' messages on Movie Star Planet
Schools need to be reviewing their web filtering controls and the providers as this is very concerning.
unfortunately things will slip through any net from time to time unless your internet is whitelist only. Any "social" site is a risk and from time to time people get it wrong. The school acted sensibly and quickly once a problem was discovered what more can you do?
So today is the day... Just downloaded a Debian ISO over our LLN connection - I've never seen such speed through their proxies!
Just waiting for those people who will ask for their email to be transferred You just know it will happen despite WEEKS of warnings
The only issue with that is, you'll get 50 people turn up at 3pm wanting it doing.
