Sophos Anti-Virus receives Virus Bulletin 100% award on Windows NT

Sophos Press Release

Sophos, a world leader in protecting businesses against viruses and spam, has announced that Sophos Anti-Virus (3.77) has been awarded the VB 100% award in the February 2004 edition of Virus Bulletin.

This is the 23rd time Sophos Anti-Virus has won a VB 100% award, confirming its position as one of the most powerful virus protection products available.

Virus Bulletin tested 24 different anti-virus products for their detection rates, lack of false alarms and speed of scanning. Sophos outperformed a number of competing products, which missed some of the commonly encountered in-the-wild viruses.

All Sophos products use the same virus-finding engine, ensuring consistently high detection rates across all platforms.

About the Virus Bulletin 100% award

The Virus Bulletin 100% awards recognise those products best able to detect viruses known to be 'in the wild'. Unlike some other similar-sounding schemes, Virus Bulletin uses the most up-to-date WildList in its tests. This means that products that are 'up with the game' are the ones most likely to be granted VB 100% awards.

Simple to deploy, manage, and use, Sophos’ award-winning encryption, endpoint security, web, email, mobile and network security solutions are backed by SophosLabs - a global network of threat intelligence centers.
