CDC Software Selects Sophos

Sophos selected by CDC Software for protection of its global network

BOSTON -- Sophos, a world leader in IT security and control, announced today that CDC Software, a wholly owned subsidiary of CDC Corporation and a provider of industry-specific enterprise software applications and business services, has selected Sophos to protect all tiers of its network against viruses, Trojans, worms, spyware, adware, potentially unwanted applications (PUAs) and hackers.

As CDC Software has numerous locations globally, the decision to consolidate at the endpoint with Sophos Anti-Virus will ensure that all worldwide locations receive the same level of protection.

For the next three years, up to 2000 CDC Software employees will be protected against viruses, spyware, adware and potentially unwanted applications at the endpoint with Sophos Anti-Virus®. Additionally, PureMessage® will disinfect and/or quarantine viruses, spyware, Trojans and worms in both incoming and outgoing email. CDC Software purchased Sophos solutions through Sophos Platinum channel partner, Softchoice based in Toronto, Canada.

“Throughout the evaluation, Sophos was enormously attentive to our needs and requirements,” said Joe Butel, vice president of IT, CDC Software. “The process from start to finish was such a refreshing change compared to our previous IT security vendors. We selected Sophos for several reasons – the quality of service and expertise, simplified management capabilities and pro-active, multi-tier protection across all divisions.”
