Sophos praised for its versatility, compatibility, features and ease-of-use

IT security and Data Protection firm Sophos today announced that Sophos Endpoint Security and Data Protection, a cross-platform solution featuring antivirus, client firewall, Network Access Control and encryption software all in one simplified console , earned a "Reviewers Choice" status in a recent product review round up conducted by Government Computer News (GCN). Sophos achieved this status for its versatility, compatibility, feature set and ease-of-use. Sophos was also chosen as the best anti-virus solution for midsize to large organizations over Symantec and Trend. Focusing on endpoint anti-virus and network security, GCN focused its review on several categories - ease-of-use, price, features and overall performance.

According to GCN Labs, "Sophos impressed us from the beginning" - managing a network of computers from a single console saves IT departments time and money as it only requires one network administrator to manage the tasks as opposed to many.

GCN concluded that "Sophos's ability to offer security to a wide breadth of operating systems and software in an easy-to-use manner sets this program apart" from others. The reviewer also stated that "Sophos is easier to use and navigate" compared to Symantec's Endpoint Protection 11.0".
