Sophos sponsors Citrix iForum in Edinburgh

Sophos Press Release

CITRIX Sophos, a global leader in anti-virus protection for businesses, has announced that it is co-sponsoring the Citrix iForum event to be held next week.

The event, running from 12-14 May 2003, will see technology leaders from around the globe gathering in Edinburgh to share the very latest thinking on application and information access technology.

When users run an application on a Citrix MetaFrame server, only the keyboard, mouse and display information are transmitted over the network. File access, application execution and application CPU utilisation all take place on a single server.

Sophos's approach to anti-virus protection is particularly suited to the Citrix MetaFrame environment where multiple clients repeatedly access the same application and data files. Sophos's technology architecture ensures that files which are known not to have changed since they were scanned do not need to be checked again for viruses.

Sophos is a member of the Citrix Business Alliance, and has been certified as one of Citrix's Premier Business Alliance Partners.
