I have evaluated Sophos 3.xx running on FreeBSD 4.10, called from Mailscanner using the perl SAVI module.
I have noticed Sophos have announced the new version 5.0 on their website and are dropping support for the 3.xx version by the end of 2005.
Before purchasing a new license, does the new version 5.0 also work with MailScanner and/or the perl SAVI module? I'll probably upgrade the mailserver to FreeBSD 5.4 64bit in the near future.
If not, does anyone know of any other good anti virus software with centralized management in a mixes Windows/FreeBSD network?
