Lynnfield, MA - Sophos, a world leader in network security,
announced today that it has renewed its alliance agreement with
Chili Systems, Inc., a premier developer of managed network server
appliances and business technology solutions. Sophos's virus
detection technology will continue to protect Chili Box customers
against malicious code.
Chili Box is a network server specifically created for small
office and home office (SOHO) environments and connects all types
of computers, ensuring that users can easily share data via the
Internet without compromising security.
As the number of viruses and the speed at which they spread
increases, keeping anti-virus software up-to-date at all times is
imperative. Sophos's virus-scanning technology protects critical
business data by regularly scanning for viruses and other threats
such as worms, Trojans, and spyware. Chili Box customers are
automatically configured to receive virus identity files (IDEs)
every 60 minutes.
"We have a tremendous working relationship with Sophos," said
Garry M. Simpson, CTO at Chili Systems. "Our synergy is a result of
a common philosophy to make networking and the internet easy. With
the Chili Box, our customers do not have to be IT managers to get
the features of an enterprise-class network."
"We are very pleased to renew our partnership with Chili
Systems," said Richard Baldry, Head of Strategic Alliances at
Sophos. "Our mutual expertise in network security and commitment
ensures that small businesses benefit from our relationship."
