Sophos Press Release

MacDirectory Awards Sophos Five Stars for "comprehensive" security and "amazing tech support"

BOSTON - March 11, 2010 - IT security and data protection firm Sophos received MacDirectory's perfect five-star rating for Sophos Computer Security SBE 4.0. The publication's independent reviewer praised the product for its ability to "detect, isolate and kill" all threats detected, and ranked Sophos's 24/7 phone support "among the best we have ever seen."

"Up and running in no time," Sophos Computer Security SBE 4.0 was able to immediately "diagnose and kill" a dangerous piece of malware on a Nehalem Mac Pro that previously went undetected by a number of other anti-malware applications tested. While other competitors' tech staff had not even heard of this widely publicized piece of malware, the reviewer was quick to laud Sophos's tech support for their patience and "impressive" expertise.

Sophos Computer Security SBE 4.0 is an industry leader in Windows and Mac protection. The solution eliminates the need for multiple products by simultaneously scanning for malware, suspicious files and behavior, and unauthorized software and device usage. Sophos's Behavioral Genotype Protection, featuring the company's HIPS technology, guards against zero-day threats and complements encryption to round out the product's comprehensive data protection capabilities.

Sophos Computer Security, along with Sophos Anti-Virus and Sophos Security Suite are the three options available to small businesses in Sophos's Small Business 4.0 edition. Each solution is easy-to-use and backed by 24/7 support, so small business owners can ensure that sensitive data on their Macs, Window-based PCs and Exchange email servers are well protected against the latest internet security threats.
