Sophos has released its latest security product for Mac and Windows users, Sophos Security Suite.

The product is aimed at small to midsize businesses. The company claims its product “provides an all-in-one defense against threats on Windows and Mac computers, laptops and servers.”

The product combines protection against viruses, spyware, adware, spam and unauthorized intrusion in one package that requires no technical expertise to install.

No user intervention is required to keep it up-to-date; it does this automatically, as frequently as every 10 minutes.

The software also features a host intrusion prevention system (HIPS). Sophos’ HIPS technology, Behavioral Genotype Protection, examines computer applications before they run and identifies malicious patterns and characteristics to help identify and block unknown malware.

The product also includes Sophos Client Firewall, which stops application hijacking and prevents intrusion by hiding desktops and remote computers from hackers.

Users also get 24/7 technical support.
