Sophos Mobile Security gets a 100% protection score…again!

Android Protection AwardFor the 11th time in a row, Sophos Mobile Security has received a perfect 100% protection score in the May 2016 edition of AV-TEST’s “The best antivirus software for Android” comparison, after successfully detecting all of the 3,300+ samples used.

We also scored 6.0 out of 6.0 for “usability,” which includes both performance and false positives (of which we had none). You can read the full test results here.

This is the eleventh straight 100% result for Sophos in AV-TEST’s Antivirus for Android shoot-out. While other products put up similar results in the current test, no other vendor comes close to sporting such a long track record of 100% detection scores. AV-TEST recognized this earlier this year by giving its Best Protection 2015 award to Sophos Mobile Security.

hello. congrats Sophos. Is it true that all vendors in AV-TEST evaluation receive the zero-day samples BEFORE the actual test? Thus, zero-plus-one day malware samples?


I am quite surprised by Sophos claims, but also not pleased by the forgetting to mention Avast’s ability to protect older Windows OS, where Sophos is useless! I also do not see any mention of Avast’s ability to find, and protect Android systems which share the same WiFi network, as it does from the Windows 10 machine(s) [my own systems, in my retired Seismic Surveyor’s computer-cave]. I also use IObit’s Advanced System Care 9, for cleaning out the corners of my systems.
It is good, that Amazon uses your system, because I enjoy Amazon’s ebook selling methods…


Low reputation application ” application mauvaise réputation” detected by Sophos mobile security for android
Dear Sophos mobile security support,

I am wondering about low reputation application that Sophos has detected in paly store, I seen that most of the applications installed from play store are detected as low reputation by Sophos is this trough, shall I deactivated this option under menu? I tried this but Sophos stopped to give the notification about the installed application; according to that the installed applications means that they are classed under low reputation?

In other hand some application that I installed them long time ago and they were safe, but when uninstall them and I reinstall them Sophos shows the notification as low reputation, even if I updated an application which was safe during the first installation and when I updated it comes as low reputation?

I think this should be reviewed by Sophos team and give us the nice solution.

Thank in advance.
