Sophos Press Release

  VB100% August 2004

Sophos, a world leader in protecting businesses against viruses and spam, today announced that Sophos Anti-Virus (3.83) has been awarded the VB 100% award in the August 2004 edition of Virus Bulletin. This is the 25th 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 10 different Novell NetWare anti-virus products for their detection rates, lack of false alarms, and speed of scanning. Sophos successfully detected all of the in-the-wild viruses with no false alarms.

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.
