Virus Bulletin 100% award February 2006

Sophos, a world leader in protecting businesses against viruses, spyware and spam, today announced that Sophos Anti-Virus has been awarded the VB 100% award by Virus Bulletin magazine. This is the 31st 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 25 different anti-virus products for their detection rates, lack of false alarms, and speed of scanning on the Windows NT 4 Workstation platform. Sophos successfully detected all of the in-the-wild and polymorphic viruses with no false alarms.

All Sophos products use the same technology to protect against viruses, worms, spyware, Trojan horses and other malware, 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.
