EuropeOne

Sophos, a world leader in corporate anti-virus protection, announced today that its award-winning virus scanning technology has been selected by EuropeOne, a principal network security company, to form a key component of its Mail Sentinel Gateway product.

The EuropeOne Mail Sentinel Gateway provides unparalleled protection from common mail server vulnerabilities. Depending on customer requirements the appliance acts as either an email gateway or mail server - protecting customers from both computer viruses and hack attacks. Sophos's anti-virus solution forms a key module within the product, defending users against over 73,000 computer viruses, worms and Trojans.

"This is an extremely important and exciting partnership for EuropeOne," said Adam Clark, director of sales at EuropeOne. "We have combined Sophos's outstanding virus detection with our own core technologies to offer a watertight and cost effective solution."

"Most businesses now rely on IT and Sophos is always keen to make corporate networks as secure as possible," said Mark Forrest, sales and marketing director at Sophos. "By working with companies such as EuropeOne we can prove that a workable balance between functionality and security is possible."

The EuropeOne Mail Sentinel Gateway allows customers to choose security components according to their individual needs. The appliance currently works with Microsoft Exchange, but can be used independently if required.
