Satcom Technologies, Sophos's channel partner in India, today
announced that Manipal Education & Medical Group has signed for
a 2000 user licence for Sophos Anti-Virus to protect its networks
throughout India and Nepal. Manipal Group will be relying on
Sophos's award-winning software to defend them against malicious
attacks for the forthcoming two years.
After reviewing several anti-virus products, Manipal Group chose
Sophos Anti-Virus on account of its efficient and reliable virus
engine, its virus removal tools and the support offered by both
Satcom Technologies and Sophos themselves.
"Satcom were flexible in pricing, a big advantage for nonprofit
organisations like ours," said S.N. Srinivasan Vishal, assistant
vice president of Information Systems, Manipal Education &
Medical Group. "They invited us to evaluate the product and
explained the benefits of Sophos as compared to other established
AV solutions." Srinivasan and his team placed the order after
evaluating Sophos for more than 3 months and found the product and
the service to be technically sound.
The deal includes licences for Enterprise Manager, a recent
addition to the Sophos product suite. Enterprise Manager automates
the installation and update of Sophos Anti-Virus, ensuring the very
latest virus protection can be downloaded at scheduled times.
"Virus protection is not just about a good product but also good
service," said Simon Murdoch, Sophos Business Development Manager
for India. "This fact clearly emerged in the evaluation process and
purchase decision of Manipal Group where Sophos emerged the
strongest compared to any of the competitors."
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.
