Sophos, a world leader in corporate anti-virus protection,
announced today that it has been selected by WWF - the global
environment network (formerly the World Wildlife Fund) - to defend
its offices around the world from computer viruses.
Under the new licence all WWF sites will be able to install
Sophos's award-winning solution, building on the successful
deployment of Sophos Anti-Virus in 16 locations throughout the
"It is essential that all of our offices are able to communicate
effectively and that the data we hold is not compromised," said
David Southern, GTS Project Manager and Head of UK IT at WWF. "Our
priorities include fast and effective protection combined with
accessible technical support. Of the several solutions we
evaluated, Sophos best fulfilled these needs."
WWF's Global Technology Service (GTS) currently has 19 member
operations with 30 locations and the WWF is active in a total of 52
countries. The organisation's computer networks link over 50
international sites across five continents and store vital
information about members, endangered species and environmental
research. Protecting these records is crucial, meaning that a
reliable and efficient anti-virus solution is a must.
WWF is now known simply by its initials and the Panda logo, in
line with the whole international network. WWF the global
environmental network takes action to conserve endangered species,
protect endangered spaces and address global environmental threats
by seeking long-term solutions.
