When reading the table below you will noticed that the Windows platform has the greatest number of policies supported. It is important to bear in mind that for some time the focus of malware writers and computer attacks has been concentrated on the Windows platform. Therefore our endpoint software for Windows has been the fastest - of our Sophos Anti-Virus for Mac, Linux, and UNIX - to develop from its initial antivirus protection into a comprehensive security offering and hence is now called 'Endpoint Security & Control'.
