Sophoss Latest Software Release Incorporates Proactive Detection and Address Complexity of Threats

Tuesday 15 February 2005 10:02 CET | News

Sophos has released its latest enterprise solutions, that offers gateway, server and endpoint protection and introduces Genotype detection technology, a method of using forensic analysis to identify suspicious patterns and characteristics that are unique to either a virus family or a spam campaign.

By analyzing these Genotype patterns, Sophos reduces exposure to new unidentified threats and unwanted content. The releases also incorporate new architecture to address the security needs of medium-to-large enterprises, which inevitably have complex IT infrastructures. Sophoss new easy-to-use management tools integrate updating and reporting tasks, removing much of the existing administration costs. A further significant advance to Sophoss endpoint product release (Sophos Anti-Virus 5.0) is an improved managed interface in the form of the new Sophos Enterprise Console. This administration console incorporates a flexible management architecture for organizations looking to simplify the management of Windows and Macintosh anti-virus protection across their network of desktops and servers -- including those running in multiple locations. IT administrators benefit from a range of features including central deployment, enforceable network-wide anti-virus policies, and powerful integrated reporting. With the ability to manage by exception, IT administrators can identify those computers with non-existent or outdated protection, remedying potential vulnerabilities quickly and easily. The email gateway and mail server product line, PureMessage, also advances integration and management capabilities with new releases. New features in the gateway product (PureMessage for UNIX 5.0) include a new reporting engine that provides greater visibility into filtering performance and expanded, flexible reporting timeframes. Additional features include easy LDAP integration, enhanced end-user web interface robustness and performance, native support for the Sun Java System Messaging Platform, and streamlined deployment. PureMessage 2.1 for Windows/Exchange offers installation improvements and scalability enhancements. Sophos enterprise solutions are backed by SophosLabs, a global network of virus and spam analysis centers, which provide unparalleled 24-hour protection against the latest threats. Building upon its acclaimed 24/7 technical support, Sophos is also introducing a premium support package designed specifically for large enterprises who require even higher levels of customized support. The new Sophos Anti-Virus products and PureMessage for Windows/Exchange will start to roll out at the end of February 2005 with PureMessage for Unix to follow thereafter.
