Sophos Supports Leopard

Endpoint security and control provides centralized control for businesses upgrading to Mac OS X 10.5

BOSTON -- IT security and control firm Sophos today announced that its Endpoint Security and Control product suite has been extended to include support for the latest version of the Apple Macintosh operating system, Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard), which was launched on Friday October 26, 2007.

Endpoint Security and Control protects all Mac operating systems running OS X and above, as well as Windows and Linux computers, from a single console, allowing for automated cross-platform management.

Sophos Endpoint Security and Control's anti-virus component detects and disinfects viruses, spyware, Trojans, and worms at every potential point of infection, ensuring full network protection on Intel-based and Power PC-based Macintosh servers, desktops and laptops. Furthermore, integrated cross-platform virus detection means Windows viruses can be deleted and cleaned on a Mac OS X computer. Unique Behavioral Genotype® Protection automatically guards against unknown threats by analyzing behavior before code executes, delivering the benefits of a Host Intrusion Prevention System (HIPS).

"More and more companies are seeing the benefits of having Macs within their network," said Phil Wood, product manager for Sophos Anti-Virus products at Sophos. "They are less targeted by threats, and their features, particularly those available in Leopard, offer unprecedented control to the user. This Sophos offering protects users who upgrade to Mac OS X Leopard, whether they are connected to the network or working from home."
