Sophos Anti-Virus for Windows XP Receives Virus Bulletin 100% Award
Posted on 05 June 2002.
Sophos, a world leader in corporate anti-virus protection, today announced that Sophos Anti-Virus for Windows XP has been awarded the VB 100% award in the June 2002 edition of Virus Bulletin. This is the 16th time Sophos Anti-Virus has won a VB 100% award, confirming its position as one of the most powerful virus protection products available.

Virus Bulletin tested 24 different anti-virus products for their detection rates, lack of false alarms, and speed of scanning. Sophos not only detected all the in-the-wild virus samples it was tested against, but also came out with a perfect score in the false alarm test.

Sophos outperformed a number of competing products which missed some of the commonly encountered in-the-wild viruses, including Kaspersky Anti-Virus, McAfee VirusScan from Network Associates, Panda Antivirus Platinum and Trend PC-cillin.

Sophos Anti-Virus uses the same virus-finding engine in all of its products, ensuring a similarly high detection rate across all platforms.

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.
