    Currently have NOD32 and considering just renewing my SpySweeper with Antivirus subscription. There doesn't seem to be too much info on Sophos (ie detection rates on AV-TEST, or AV-COMPARATIVES), or am I just looking in the wrong places?

    Thanks in advance!

    Sophos doesnt have particularly good detection rates; and some months ago when AV-Comparatives tested it, Sophos asked that their results be removed.

    Thanks for the info. I'm a little worried about why they would have their results removed. Only legitimate reason would be that they were ashamed of what they were (not) achieving!

    Seems pretty dismal for a company that only provides corporate services. Do they currently only license out to SpySweeper?
