WOBURN, MA and ATLANTA, GA -- Sophos Inc., the leading developer of network oriented anti-virus software, today announced the launch of its Sophos Solution Provider (SSP) Program. The SSP Program is designed to attract partnerships with the leading Value Added Resellers and Systems Integrators seeking the superior client-server solution offered by Sophos Anti-Virus (SAV).

SAV combines workstation and server protection to provide simplicity, security, and stability. Unlike other anti-virus products, SAV provide the same highly automated solution for all popular network configurations. The product will be demonstrated at Atlanta's Networld+ Interop, along with the announcement of the aggressive reseller program designed to support it.

"Because SAV combines maximum protection for simple and complex networks with minimal demands on users, we believe it is the ultimate corporate solution for virus protection," said Richard Jacobs, President of Sophos, Inc.. "The Sophos Solution Provider Program represents a unique opportunity to VARs, large and small, who are interested in developing and maintaining long term relationships with their customers. We invite qualified resellers to explore the potential US market impact of SAV and the SPP program at Networld + Interop."
