NetXactics, the Southern African distributor for Sophos, a world
leader in corporate anti-virus protection, today announced that the
University of the Western Cape has chosen Sophos Anti-Virus to
defend the University's servers and workstations from the over
75,000 computer viruses, Trojans and worms in existence.
The University of the Western Cape chose Sophos Anti-Virus after
an extensive evaluation of the many anti-virus solutions available
in the market, since it was found to best meet its needs.
"With our 5000 users and dual Microsoft and Novell server
platforms, we needed a product that operated and updated seamlessly
across all our platforms", commented Anver Natha, Network Services
Manager, at the UWC.
"The product is simple to implement on multiple platforms, no
unnecessary bells and whistles that make other products an
administrative energy waster," continued Ian Stamp, UWC's System
Engineer. "Technical support is of the highest level, a different
class to any other anti-virus product that I have used."
"We are delighted the University of the Western Cape has joined
the long list of companies, organisations and educational
establishments to have selected Sophos Anti-Virus to protect their
systems from malware attack," added Brett Myroff, CEO of
NetXactics. "The students of today will be the managers and
decision-makers of tomorrow, so it is especially important to us
that they are familiar with the world-beating solutions available
Sophos Anti-Virus has a strong record of protecting against the
latest viruses and is regularly verified for its detection
capabilities by independent testing bodies such as those from the
ICSA, West Coast Labs and AV-Test.Org.
