Sophos Anti-Virus Receives 26th Virus Bulletin 100% Award

  • 02 November, 2004 11:27

<p>Sophos, a world leader in protecting businesses against viruses and spam, has announced that Sophos Anti-Virus has been awarded the Virus Bulletin 100% award in the November 2004 edition of Virus Bulletin. This is the 26th time Sophos Anti-Virus has won a VB 100% award, confirming its position as one of the most powerful virus protection products available.</p>
<p>Virus Bulletin tested 26 different anti-virus products for their detection rates, lack of false alarms and speed of scanning on the Windows Server 2003 platform. Sophos successfully detected all of the in-the-wild, macro and polymorphic viruses with no false alarms.</p>
<p>All Sophos products use the same virus-finding engine, ensuring consistently high detection rates across all platforms.</p>
<p>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% awards.</p>
