Sophos, the world leader in network-based anti-virus solutions,
has launched version 2.0 of Sophos
Anti-Virus for Notes/Domino. This new version of Sophos
Anti-Virus (SAV) software will detect, report and remove viruses in
Lotus Notes databases and emails.
The Sophos software runs on Domino servers and offers three
different working modes: immediate mode which scans for viruses on
command; scheduled mode which scans databases on specific days and
times; and real time mode which intercepts and scans incoming and
outgoing email attachments.
A comprehensive messaging service allows SAV to warn
administrators, senders and recipients about detected viruses. SAV
for Notes/Domino can also scan attachments for viruses that have
been compressed by ZIP or other compression tools.

marketing manager for Lotus Development. "Sophos Anti-Virus for
Notes/Domino offers a reliable way to prevent that threat from

Sophos. "The sheer amount of data that is amassed by these large
companies via the Internet means the risk of infections spreading
rapidly is a prime concern. With our latest version, companies can
be sure that the risk of infection is significantly reduced."
