<p>FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Sydney, 25 November 2004</p>
<p>Sophos, a world leader in protecting businesses against viruses and spam, has announced the release of Sophos Anti-Virus for NetApp Storage Systems, a new product that defends Network Appliance networked storage solutions.</p>
<p>With Sophos's industrial strength virus protection technology, system administrators can safeguard all stored data from the very latest viruses, worms, Trojan horses and spyware.</p>
<p>Sophos Anti-Virus for NetApp Storage Systems' flexible configuration options allow administrators to tailor the product to their network infrastructure requirements. By protecting the stored data with scheduled or constant real-time scanning and by using proactive detection technology, business data is secured from viruses and other malicious software.</p>
<p>"Data is the lifeblood of every company’s operations, and so it is critical that all computers in an organisation are properly protected against all the latest virus threats," said Rob Forsyth, Managing Director, Sophos Australia and New Zealand.</p>
<p>"Sophos Anti-Virus for NetApp Storage Systems safeguards data at the storage level, rather than the user level to ensure a higher level of network security and overall performance. Updates for the solution are generated automatically which significantly reduces the load on IT administrators."</p>
<p>Simon Green, Managing Director of Network Appliance Australia and New Zealand welcomed the release of Sophos Anti-Virus for NetApp Storage Systems saying, “We are delighted by this move. Stored data volumes are growing at a very fast rate for every type of organisation and the proven and award-winning Sophos solution will protect our customers against virus attacks as they consolidate their storage across multiple servers and applications.”</p>
<p>Sophos can protect all NetApp storage systems running Data ONTAP 6.5 operating system. Running from a connected Windows NT/XP/2000/2003 computer, Sophos Anti-Virus for NetApp Storage Systems can administer the scanning of files remotely.</p>
