Sophos Anti-Virus wins 'Best performance' award

1 August 2000

Sophos Anti-Virus, Europe's leading developer of corporate anti-virus solutions, has been awarded 'Best performance' in a comparative anti-virus test by PC Plus magazine.
The test, published in the August 2000 edition of PC Plus, was conducted in coordination with the virus testing facilities at West Coast Labs.
Sophos Anti-Virus out-performed some of the world's leading antivirus solutions to scoop the award for 'Best protection', detecting all in-the-wild viruses.
PC Plus praised Sophos Anti-Virus's InterCheck on-access scanner: "This solution is accurate, surprisingly fast and adaptable to desktops, workstations, servers, networks and even whole enterprises. When experts leapfrog into a technical lead with a virtually totally secure solution like that, you have to take them at their word: they are on the lookout for the best and most secure precautions for your data."
The magazine went on to praise Sophos's legendary technical support and customer service: "The support provided by the Sophos team is not exceeded by its competitors, and every bit of information, every operation of the anti-virus package is geared to the best interests of the responsible PC user."
"We are delighted to have the quality of Sophos Anti-Virus confirmed by these tests," said Graham Cluley, Head of Corporate Communications at Sophos. The full review can be read in the August 2000 edition of PC Plus magazine.
