  3. 3. Independent & Analyst Reviews ImageTrak Business IT Survey Ranks SOPHOS highest in customer satisfaction. Each security vendor was scored against five satisfaction criteria - quality of support, ease of integration, manageability, reliability and return on investment. Sophos was rated very highly throughout and was classed as either the No. 1 or No. 2 brand consistently ahead of key competitors, McAfee, Symantec and Trend Micro. Faster Response than Alternatives Independent analysis regularly shows that Sophos responds more quickly than other leading vendors. This is a great testament to our rapid response to virus outbreaks from our global network of integrated virus, spyware and spam analysis centers and the innovative proactive detection capabilities of our Genotype™ virus detection technology - True Alternative to Symantec and McAfee Sophos successfully intercepted 86% of the malware tested against prior to execution, compared to 43% for McAfee and 51% for Symantec. In addition, Sophos's run-time HIPS protection detected further malware samples at execution raising proactive detection of zero-day threats to an "impressive" 97% in Cascadia Labs' anti-virus tests.
  4. 4. Leader in Zero-Day Protection Sophos detected more new unknown malware reported to the independent AVIEWS mailing list in a four month period than any other vendor. AVIEWS is the Anti-Virus Information & Early Warning System, an online community that shares information about breaking malware threats between anti-virus vendors, researchers, security experts, and system administrators. In the four month study Sophos was found to proactively detect 80% of all unknown malware reported to the mailing list, higher than any other vendor, compared to 50% for Microsoft, 35% for Symantec and 30% for McAfee.
  5. 5. Gartner Magic Quadrant “Sophos…has a better understanding of business needs, particularly the need to provide return on investment for the buyer and to balance advanced features with low administration." Gartner's Magic Quadrant for Endpoint Protection Platforms is based on an assessment of a company's ability to execute and completeness of vision. According to Gartner, "Leaders demonstrate balanced progress and effort in all execution and vision categories. Their actions raise the competitive bar for all products in the market, and they can change the course of the industry." Gartner specifically identified the following strengths in Sophos as deserving of a position in the Leaders Quadrant: • Significantly improved and simple management, that gives a real time view from which actions can be immediately taken (e.g. force an update on all those computers). • Excellent integrated network access control (NAC) capability with the ability to monitor, assess and remediate competitive EPP clients (NAC will be available April 2008). • Roadmap commitments for data encryption, with basic media port controls already in place.
