The Australian Volunteer Coast Guard Association is using Sophos
Anti-Virus to protect PCs in its 60 operational and training bases
in the eastern states of Australia.
"Up until now we have had difficulty in establishing an
effective anti-virus program," explained Chris Gillet, the
Association's National Commodore. "Sophos Anti-Virus has solved the
problem and we are impressed with its scope, efficiency and the
regularity of updates."
"We're delighted to support the Australian Volunteer Coast Guard
Association. Sophos Anti-Virus will be used to protect all of their
computers, maintaining operational and training databases as well
as communications between the bases", said Graham Cluley, senior
technology consultant for Sophos Anti-Virus. "While they're busy on
baywatch, we'll be on viruswatch."
The Australian Volunteer Coast Guard Association, staffed
entirely by volunteers, was formed in 1961 to promote safety in the
operation of small craft. Australia, the world's largest island,
has a coastline of 19,650 kilometres (12,210 miles).
