Sophos, a world leader in corporate anti-virus protection, announced today that its technology has been selected by Talk-101, the complete business internet solution provider, to form an integral part of its internet management service.

"For managed service providers, anti-virus scanning is no longer an optional extra, security services represent a critical part of their customer offerings," said Richard Baldry, product manager at Sophos.
