Sophos Anti-Virus receives West Coast Checkmark for 100% detection of in-the-wild viruses yet again
Sophos announced today that its flagship product, Sophos Anti-Virus, has yet again achieved West Coast Labs Checkmark certification.
Sophos Anti-Virus version 3.57 for Windows 95/98, Sophos Anti-Virus version 3.57 for Windows NT Server and Sophos Anti-Virus version 3.57 for Novell NetWare have again successfully been awarded Anti-Virus Checkmark level 1, providing further independent verification that Sophos is capable of protecting against all known ‘in-the-wild’ viruses in both on-demand and on-access modes.
The Checkmark system has been developed by West Coast Labs, an independent research and test centre. It provides a reliable means of authenticating those products which users can consistently rely upon to provide the highest quality anti-virus solutions.
“Sophos Anti-Virus has an enviable record in independent comparative tests, and we are delighted to have our detection rates confirmed once again by the experts at West Coast Labs,” said Graham Cluley, senior technology consultant at Sophos. “This is the latest in a long line of accolades already received this year, including the CBI Company of the Year award and two prestigious Queen’s Awards for Enterprise.”
