Sophos Anti-Virus has won the VB100 award again

Sophos, a world leader in IT security and control, today announced that Sophos Endpoint Security and Control has been awarded the accolade of VB100 in the October 2008 edition of Virus Bulletin magazine.

This is the 43rd time that Sophos has won a prestigious VB100 award, confirming its ability to detect 100% of the viruses in the wild, and its position as one of the most powerful anti-malware products available.

Virus Bulletin tested 24 different anti-virus products for their detection rates, lack of false alarms, and speed of scanning on Windows Server 2008. Sophos successfully detected all of the in-the-wild 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 operating systems.

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 VB100 awards. More information about Virus Bulletin can be found on its website: www.virusbtn.com.
