Mary Landesman, reviewing on behalf of About.com, says

"the protection literally is business-grade - the free version is based on the same Mac virus scanner Sophos uses in their Endpoint Security line. Best of all, Sophos Anti-Virus for Mac Home Edition detects both Mac and Windows malware."

Rating the free Mac anti-virus product a maximum 5 out of 5 stars, the review concludes:

"Sophos Anti-Virus for Mac Home Edition offers more complete scanning than most of its competitors - detecting not just Mac malware but Windows malware as well. This alone puts them ahead of the pack in Mac antivirus protection. But Sophos goes one step further, offering Sophos Anti-Virus for Mac free to home users. For Mac users in search of antivirus, this may just be an offer that's too good to pass up."
