Press release:

27 May 2002 - Sophos announced the launch of Enterprise Manager, the first product in the next generation of Sophos Anti-Virus administration tools. Enterprise Manager provides automatic distribution of the very latest virus protection updates and Sophos applications as well as offering on-demand updates.

Mark Laister, product manager at Sophos said: "Enterprise Manager can be installed and configured in minutes. It builds on, rather than replaces, existing anti-virus procedures, and - even though it can be set up to operate entirely automatically - it does not need dedicated hardware or database servers. Best of all, it does not require every computer in a network to update 'live' from an external website. This is a scaleable solution which does not require users or administrators to click anything."
