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

The product is aimed at small to medium businesses. The company claims its solution "provides an all-in-one defence against threats on Windows and Mac computers, laptops and servers".

The solution combines protection against viruses, spyware, adware, spam and unauthorised 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 ten minutes.

The software also features a host intrusion prevention system (HIPS). Sophos's 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.
