Sophos Anti-Virus Receives West Coast Checkmark

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 3.60 for Windows 95/98, Sophos Anti-Virus version 3.60 for Windows NT Server and Sophos Anti-Virus version 3.60 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 comparative tests by independent laboratories,” said Graham Cluley, senior technology consultant at Sophos. “This is the latest in a long line of accolades already received this year – we’re delighted to have had the quality of our software verified by the experts at West Coast Labs.”
