Sophos Endpoint Security and Control

Boston, Mass. - January 20, 2009 - IT security and control firm, Sophos, announced that Windows IT Pro magazine has tested Sophos Endpoint Security and Control, which integrates anti-virus, anti-spyware, host intrusion prevention, application control, firewall and Network Access Control (NAC) to block viruses and spyware as well as ensure that computers are running authorized, up-to-date software and adhering to company policies. Windows IT Pro magazine's Endpoint-Protection Products review gave Sophos Endpoint Security and Control a "Recommend" status for mid- and large-sized organizations, particularly those that can benefit from the product's NAC features.

Windows IT Pro noted that "the integrated NAC assessment, remediation, and enforcement protection is a real plus, helping you know when client systems comply with policies and limit network access of noncompliant systems," and "the product can serve you well, particularly if the NAC features or antivirus support for non-Microsoft systems are important to your organization."

Additionally, the reviewer stated "Sophos Endpoint Security and Control is easy to install and manage. Its anti-virus component supports a broad set of platforms, and the policy-based design automatically keeps client systems up-to-date as policies change."
