Sophos, a world leader in corporate anti-virus protection, and
CipherTrust, Inc., providers of the industry's first security
appliance for email, today announced that they have been selected
by Specsavers Opticians to defend 10,000 computer users against
malicious viruses, Trojan horses and worms. CipherTrust's IronMail
solution has been deployed by Specsavers Opticians, the UK's
biggest optical retailer, to protect against hacking, ensure
messages are transmitted privately and provide virus protection
powered by Sophos.
All Specsavers Opticians stores in the UK, Ireland and Holland
are now protected by IronMail.
"We opted for IronMail as it was the only product capable of
delivering a total email security solution," said Nigel Spain,
technology services manager at Specsavers Opticians. "An important
part of that was the ability to effectively protect our data
against virus infection. Viruses have a severe effect on thousands
of businesses both in terms of financial loss and damaged
credibility - we are determined not to become one of them."
CipherTrust's IronMail appliance - incorporating Sophos's
technology - has been designed to be a complete security solution
providing protection for both email servers and email messages.
Specsavers Opticians is the UK's number 1 choice for eye tests.
Specsavers Opticians is a trusted name with more than 450 stores
caring for millions of people's eyes.
As the provider of the industry's first security appliance for
email, CipherTrust, Inc. is a leader in developing comprehensive
security solutions for enterprise messaging systems.
CipherTrust secure appliances are easy to deploy and easy to
use. They provide reliability, scalability, and security suitable
