Sophos, a world leader in protecting businesses from spam and viruses, today announced that Sophos Anti-Virus for Mac OS X has been extended to include support for the latest version of the Apple Macintosh operating system, Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger.

Ideal for multi-national organisations as well as small and medium businesses, Sophos Anti-Virus for Mac OS X is available in five languages: English, French, Spanish, German and Japanese. It allows users to perform on-demand scanning of files and folders and its on-access scanner safeguards computers by detecting and disinfecting all known virus types. Any file that is found to be infected will not be allowed to run, ensuring the computer remains virus-free.

Keeping anti-virus protection updated is crucial, so Sophos Anti-Virus for Mac OS X enables automatic updates of all desktops, whether they are connected to a local area network or to the internet. Remote users can keep their systems up-to-date, even if they cannot access the network, with automatic updates from their company website. Reports can also be sent to a remote location.

"This is the perfect solution for companies who have adopted Macs and want to keep their entire network secure," said Phil Wood, product manager for Macintosh products at Sophos. "Sophos's latest anti-virus solution ensures that users who upgrade to Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger are still protected, whether in the office or on the road."

Sophos Anti-Virus uses Mac OS X's own SMTP client to send alert messages, so if a user is disconnected from the network, messages will queue until a connection is found, ensuring no alerts are lost. This also ensures the administrator is always kept informed.

Administrators can also create a central installation source and install to all networked Macs automatically using OS X Server tools such as Network Install to provide automatic updates as and when required.
