Sophos Anti-Virus certified to detect 100% of spyware

Leading independent testing body awards Sophos Anti-Virus with spyware certification

Independent research and test center West Coast Labs has announced that Sophos Anti-Virus for Windows XP has been awarded the certification Checkmark for detecting 100% of the spyware in their rigorous tests.

The certification confirms Sophos's expertise in protecting businesses against the spyware threats and joins existing awards that have demonstrated the Sophos product suite's expertise in detecting and disinfecting all known in-the-wild viruses and Trojan horses.

By passing West Coast Labs' stringent Checkmark spyware certification test, Sophos has again demonstrated its effectiveness in protecting business against all kinds of malicious content.

"Organizations are demanding anti-spyware protection that is purpose-built for business and Sophos's award of the Checkmark Spyware Certification confirms the excellence of their solution," said Chris Thomas, Operations Director at West Coast Labs. "We're delighted to report that Sophos's anti-virus product detected 100% of the spyware including password stealers, crackers, financials, keyloggers, backdoors, downloaders and proxys in West Coast Labs' test suite, without causing a single false alarm."

The Checkmark system has been developed by West Coast Labs, an independent research and test center. It provides a reliable means of authenticating products and certifying those of the highest quality.

Experts at Sophos have published a white paper explaining how spyware can be tackled through integrated threat management. The paper describes how spyware infiltrates and affects organizations, and how companies can best defend themselves with a consolidated solution.
