Sophos Small Business Solutions gets top marks in ZDNet review

November 11, 2009 Sophos Press Release

In an independent review on endpoint security suites, Sophos Computer Security Small Business Edition 4.0 was ranked one of the top three solutions for its solid defense against malware threats and robust firewall capabilities.

The solution, which is an all-in-one anti-virus, anti-spam, firewall and encryption security package for small businesses, detected 99 per cent of spyware and viruses. The review also found that Sophos's client firewall kept the host well protected on the network, ensuring small businesses are kept safe from hackers and other unauthorised applications trying to connect to the system.

The ZDNet review, performed by Enex TestLab, compared 11 different security suites in its ability to detect malware and the effectiveness of its desktop firewall. Testing the solutions using default protections settings, Sophos was found to outperform similar security products from a wide range of security vendors including McAfee, Trend Micro and Check Point.

According to Rob Forsyth, Managing Director, Asia Pacific, a positive review from the independent Enex Test Labs is terrific confirmation that small businesses can rest easy with Sophos's Computer Security Small Business Edition 4.0 knowing their sensitive data is well protected against data theft and virus outbreaks before they become a disruption to the business and without compromising legitimate business use.

"We are very pleased with the results of this roundup review, in particular the acknowledgement of the strength of our anti-malware detection engine. Sophos invests in significant R&D to ensure that we can best protect our customers, and the results of this test reinforce this."

Sophos Computer Security, along with Sophos Anti-Virus and Sophos Security Suite are the three options available to small businesses in Sophos's Small Business 4.0 edition. Each solution is easy-to-use and provides 24/7 support, so small business owners can ensure the sensitive data on their Mac and Window based PCs and Exchange email servers are well protected against harmful internet security threats.
