Sophos, a world leader in corporate anti-virus protection, today announced that Sophos Anti-Virus for Windows 2000 Advanced Server (3.62) has been awarded the VB 100% award in the November 2002 edition of Virus Bulletin. This is the 18th time Sophos Anti-Virus has won a VB 100% award, confirming its position as one of the most powerful virus protection products available.
Virus Bulletin tested 21 different anti-virus products for their detection rates, lack of false alarms, and speed of scanning. Sophos outperformed a number of competing products, which missed some of the commonly encountered in-the-wild viruses.
"As the virus threat is continually changing, customers need products that will provide their systems with the best possible virus protection," said Helen Martin, editor of Virus Bulletin. "Sophos Anti-Virus displayed excellent detection rates and generated no false positives, thus earning its 18th VB 100% award."
All Sophos products use the same virus-finding engine, ensuring consistently high detection rates across all platforms.
About the Virus Bulletin 100% award
The Virus Bulletin 100% awards recognise those products best able to detect viruses known to be 'in the wild'. Unlike some other similar-sounding schemes, Virus Bulletin uses the most up-to-date WildList in its tests. This means that products that are 'up with the game' are the ones most likely to be granted VB 100% awards.
