Sophos Anti-Virus (3.74) has been awarded the VB 100% award in the November 2003 edition of Virus Bulletin. This is the 22nd 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 21 different anti-virus products for their detection rates, lack of false alarms, and speed of scanning. Sophos outperformed a number of competing products, which missed some of the commonly encountered in-the-wild viruses.
All Sophos products use the same virus-finding engine, ensuring consistently high detection rates across all platforms.
