Sophos Anti-Virus updated
Sophos today announced the latest version of Sophos Anti-Virus for Mac OS X. The update provides complete protection against all known threats, according to the company, and includes support for the new Intel Duo processor powered iMac, as well as the MacBook Pro. Available in English, Japanese, French, German and Spanish language versions, Sophos Anti-Virus 4.7 allows users to perform on-demand scanning of files and folders, while its on-access scanner intercepts file accesses and protects against all types of malware, including non-Mac viruses, to provide a multi-layered defence against threats. Sophos Anti-Virus for Mac OS X enables automatic updates for all desktops. In addition, third-party developers producing anti-virus or security products for Mac OS X are able to integrate Sophos virus scanning technology into their products in the same way that OEMs and system integrators have done on Windows and Unix platforms. The software runs on Mac OS X 10.2 or later (pricing not available).
