Sophos Press Release


Lynnfield, MA - Sophos, a world leader in corporate anti-virus solutions, and Qubux, a leading provider of server appliance solutions, have partnered to extend anti-virus protection in conjunction with Qubux's internet filtering solution for the Sun Cobalt line of server appliances.

The Sun Cobalt application enables diverse organizations to establish an internet presence and network communications through simple value-based servers. The Qubux Anti-Virus (QAV) Solution for Sun Cobalt is offered exclusively on Sun Cobalt platforms and is compatible with all operating system networks and popular browsers. QAV monitors for viruses at multiple entry points including: disks, programs, documents, network drives, CD ROMs, email, groupware, internet downloads and archive files.

With this partnership, Sophos's dependable virus detection technology will now be available to scan incoming and outgoing email as part of the fully featured internet filtering solution offered by Qubux, preloaded on either the RAQ or Qube or as an add-on.

"Qubux is very proud to have Sophos as its newest partner," said Craig Beck, President at Qubux, Inc. "We will be using Sophos's superior anti-virus technology as the foundation for our suite of server appliance cyber-security applications."

"Qubux has addressed the growing demand for security applications that run on Sun's Cobalt line of server appliances," said Ralph Pisani, Jr., director of business development at Sophos Americas. "The addition of our anti-virus technology to their existing content filtering solution is a natural fit and we are pleased that they have selected Sophos."
