Yesterday, the 20th of July, Cupertino-based software developer Apple announced to the world that Mac OS X 10.7 Lion has been released to the masses and is available for download on the Mac App Store. Shortly after, Sophos, company founded back in 1985 that specializes in providing antivirus, anti-spam, spyware removal software, network and internet security, announced that its Home and Corporate editions of Sophos Anti-Virus for Mac are compatible with Lion.

Senior Product Manager for Sophos's Web Protection and Mac products, Rich Baldry, explained that the fact that Sophos Anti-Virus for Mac is compatible with Lion is not a new thing. Both the Home and the Corporate editions have been compatible since June 2011, when version 7.3.0 of Sophos Anti-Virus for Mac was released.

So if you’re thinking about upgrading to Lion, you will be glad to know that Sophos Anti-Virus for Mac will continue to offer the highest level of protection. Just make sure to update your Sophos Anti-Virus for Mac before you upgrade to Lion. If you upgrade to Lion first, then update Sophos Anti-Virus for Mac, you may find out that Lion disabled the security solution. “Apple have informed us that older versions will be automatically disabled by the upgrade process,” explained Rich Baldry.

Switching focus onto Lion, it must be said that the operating system is available for purchase from the Mac App Store for $29.99 (Lion Server is available for $49.99). Lion comes with 250 new features, including the following:
  • New Multi-Touch gestures and fluid animations.
  • Mission Control gives you a bird’s eye view of every app and window running on your Mac by combining Expose, full screen apps, Dashboard and Spaces into one.
  • The Mac App Store built-into the operating system.
  • A completely redesigned Mail app.
  • Resume is a new feature that brings your apps back exactly how you left them when you restart your Mac or quit and relaunch an app.
  • Auto Save automatically and continuously saves your documents as you work.
  • Versions automatically records the history of a document as you create it. It also gives you an easy way to browse, revert and copy and paste from previous versions.
  • Automatic peer-to-peer (P2P) wireless connections are established with nearby Macs with AirDrop. Thus you can easily find, connect and share files with other Macs.

Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing, called Lion “the best version of OS X yet”.
