Sophos Anti-Virus Receives 27th Virus Bulletin 100% Award

  • 31 January, 2005 10:06

<p>Sophos, a world leader in protecting businesses against viruses and spam, has announced that Sophos Anti-Virus has been awarded the VB 100% award in the February 2005 edition of Virus Bulletin. This is the 27th 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 28 different anti-virus products for their detection rates, lack of false alarms and speed of scanning on the Windows NT platform. Sophos successfully detected all of the in-the-wild and polymorphic viruses with no false alarms, outperforming a number of competing vendors including McAfee and F-Secure.</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>

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
