Choosing the best antivirus & anti-malware security application can be easily overwhelming.

The network security market is vast and fractured. After a long evaluation process, we at Abacus chose to partner with Sophos for its incredible Unified Threat Management (UTM) and endpoint security solutions. Minimizing threats and protecting data is what's most important — we chose Sophos because it offers the best detection and protection from malware and internet threats on the cybersecurity market, and includes user-friendly, comprehensive features and a simple UX, making it the best choice.

Since there are so many options out there, we created an anti-virus security buyers guide to help guide your decision, and ultimately help you understand why we chose Sophos to protect our internet systems and desktops, as well as our clients:
