Sophos Anti-Virus has won the VB100 award again
Sophos, a world leader in IT security and control, today
announced that Sophos Endpoint Security and Control has been
awarded the accolade of VB100 in the December 2008 edition of Virus
This is the 44th time that Sophos has won a prestigious VB100
award, confirming its ability to detect 100% of the viruses in the
wild, and its position as one of the most powerful anti-malware
Virus Bulletin tested a large number of different anti-virus
products for their detection rates, lack of false alarms, and speed
of scanning on Windows Vista x64. Sophos successfully detected all
of the in-the-wild viruses with no false alarms, outperforming a
number of other vendors.
"[Sophos's] product impressed our tester with its speed of
installation, well laid out interface and depth of configuration,"
wrote Virus Bulletin in its review.
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 operating systems.
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 VB100 awards. More
