its flagship product, Sophos Anti-Virus, has yet again achieved
West Coast Labs Checkmark certification.
Sophos Anti-Virus version 3.75 for Windows 98, Sophos Anti-Virus
version 3.75 for NetWare and Sophos Anti-Virus version 3.75 for
Windows NT Server have all successfully been awarded Anti-Virus
Checkmark level 1, providing further independent verification that
Sophos is capable of protecting against all known 'in-the-wild'
viruses in both on-demand and on-access modes.
The Windows NT Server version of Sophos Anti-Virus was also
submitted for disinfection testing, successfully passing the test and
attaining level 2 certification.
"Companies recognise that their data and users must be protected
against the latest viruses," said Graham Cluley, senior technology
consultant at Sophos. "We are delighted to have the high quality of
Sophos's products confirmed yet again by the independent experts at
West Coast Labs."
The Checkmark system has been developed by West Coast Labs, an
independent research and test centre. It provides a reliable means
of authenticating those products which users can consistently rely
upon to provide the highest quality anti-virus solutions.
