Sophos Anti-Virus SBE 2.0, Sophos's integrated protection solution for small businesses, has won the prestigious "Editor's Choice" award in a comparative test conducted by ITPro.

ITPro tested McAfee Active VirusScan SMB Edition, Symantec AntiVirus 10.2, F-Secure Anti-Virus Small Business Suite and Sophos Sophos Anti-Virus Small Business Edition 2.0. The review concluded that Sophos offered "an outstanding all-round anti-virus product that combines solid detection with regular updates and straightforward management - all without imposing on the user."

Sophos received the maximum rating of six stars out of six, and the title of "Editor's Choice".

"Sophos is recognized as the clear alternative to McAfee and Symantec for small businesses and enterprises who want to defend their networks from security threats," said Graham Cluley, senior technology consultant for Sophos. "Sophos offers not only the best in customer service and technical support, but also delivers to businesses a first class defense against malware attack."
