VB 100%
Sophos Anti-Virus has won the VB 100% award again

Sophos, a world leader in protecting businesses against viruses, spyware and spam, today announced that Sophos Anti-Virus has been awarded the VB 100% award by Virus Bulletin magazine. This is the 34th time that Sophos Anti-Virus has won a prestigious VB 100% award, confirming its position as one of the most powerful virus protection products available.

Virus Bulletin tested 26 different anti-virus products for their detection rates, lack of false alarms, and speed of scanning on the Windows 2000 operating system. Sophos successfully detected all of the in-the-wild viruses with no false alarms, outperforming a number of other vendors.

All Sophos products use the same technology to protect against viruses, worms, spyware, Trojan horses and other malware, 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. More information about Virus Bulletin can be found on its website: www.virusbtn.com.
