Sophos on Wednesday released a new version of its
Sophos Anti-Virus for Mac OS X, updated to work on Mac OS X v10.3 or higher. The software is aimed at corporate computing environments looking to protect Mac users from possible virus infection or transmission, providing centralized configuration and updating of anti-virus settings. Sophos Anti-Virus can update its virus protection on client Macs over a LAN or the Internet, and remote users can also update their virus protection through the Web. Sophos Anti-Virus is available in English, French, Spanish, German and Japanese. A command-line version of the software can also be executed through the Mac OS X Terminal utility. Customers interested in buying Sophos Anti-Virus must contact Sophos for pricing details.
Sophos Anti-Virus for Mac OS X was first introduced a year ago at Macworld CreativePro Conference & Expo in New York. Sophos noted plans to attend next month’s
Macworld Conference & Expo in Boston, as well — attendees can visit them at booth 632 for a demonstration of the software.
