Sophos Anti-Virus has won the VB 100% award
Sophos, a world leader in protecting businesses against viruses,
spyware and spam, today announced that Sophos Anti-Virus has been
awarded the VB 100% award by Virus Bulletin magazine. This is the
32nd time that Sophos Anti-Virus has won a prestigious VB 100%
award, confirming its position as one of the most powerful virus
protection products available.
Virus Bulletin tested 27 different anti-virus products for their
detection rates, lack of false alarms, and speed of scanning on the
Windows XP operating system. Sophos successfully detected all of
the in-the-wild and polymorphic viruses with no false alarms,
outperforming a number of other vendors.
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 platforms.
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 VB 100%
