Forrester states that Sophos offers feature-rich solutions for the threat mitigation market

Sophos today announced that it was among the select companies that Forrester invited to participate in The Forrester Wave™: Client Security Suites, Q3 2006, September 2006.

In this evaluation, Sophos was cited as a strong performer in the Client Security Suite market. The Forrester Wave results are based on 83 criteria from vendor, customer and partner interviews, and other related Forrester research.

Natalie Lambert, analyst at Forrester Research and Wave report author, writes that "Sophos Endpoint Security provides a single agent for all of its functionality. This enables simple deployment of the product through a push from the console." Lambert continued, "Sophos customers consistently say that working with Sophos couldn't be easier... Furthermore, the SophosLabs™ researchers work with all types of the malicious code and therefore see correlations between different types of code and create signatures that treat the entire threat."

On a scale of 0 to 5 (5 strong), Sophos received strong scores in the following categories:

  • unified architecture
  • malware definitions
  • behavioral protection
  • support staff

"Sophos is pleased to be recognized as a strong performer in The Forrester Wave™: Client Security Suite report, Q3 2006," said Steve Munford, CEO of Sophos. "Threat management is very critical for enterprises, and the ability to stop unknown threats before they happen separates our offering from the other security vendors."
