do all updating for you, and that you
do not need to do anything manually.

While it was very close, this year we find we have three to


recommend: Sophos, Kaspersky and Symantec. Which one
you choose will be highly dependent on how your business is
structured...

The lab was particularly


fond of the way that Sophos
goes beyond the industry's
traditional signatures and
basic heuristics to identify
malware and unwanted files,

it picks up things our
previous solution did not.

The one thing I hear most


often is that users dont even
know that its working because
they dont receive an
abundance of unwanted
