I'm don't understand why you would think HitmanPro is no longer supported.

You may have read reports that HitmanPro was sold to Sophos but they continue to provide support.

4. Is Sophos Clean intended for home use?
No. It can only be purchased in a minimum of 5 user licences to aim it solely at the business space. HitmanPro continues to be available from Surfright for consumers.

Sophos Clean: Frequently Asked Questions

Sophos Clean is available for SMB customers only, however, you can use SurfRight (a Sophos company) Hitman Pro which is still available for home users.

Sophos Clean

Sophos Clean and HitmanPro are...Two names for same product.

Sophos Clean and HitmanPro use the same license. You can scan for free ALWAYS, cleaning is free for 30 days. Cleaning after 30 days requires paid license. Same for both products.
