BOSTON - July 15, 2010 - IT security and data protection firm Sophos today announced that its flagship solution Sophos Endpoint Security and Data Protection - offering protection against viruses, malware, spyware, data leakage, potentially unwanted applications and includes HIPS, firewall, encryption, and network access control from a single agent - has earned five out of five stars in SC Magazine's July 2010 Unified Threat Management Group Test. Sophos earned a perfect score across all categories - features, ease of use, performance, documentation, support, and value for money.

SC Magazine noted that Sophos Endpoint Security and Data Protection offered "a very impressive list of protection technologies" and "all of the features are governed by centralized policy management and easily distributed to client agents". The reviewer was also "very impressed with the inclusion of granular data leakage protection monitoring using content control lists" and how the solution has the ability to "control how data is used when it spots pre-defined strings" - including credit card numbers, social security numbers, and other sensitive information.

The reviewer was also impressed with Sophos Endpoint Security and Data Protection as it supports various client operating systems - Windows, Mac, Linux and Unix - and the help files within the console are very comprehensive.
