    I am looking at an antivirus solution for my office network. Mainly my exchange 2000 server (webserver as well), sqlserver, app. server and 70 other workstations.

    Norton is the only solution I have looked at enterprise software which will run about 3500 CDN...

    what are other better solutions?

    I have a server running Norton Corporate 9.0 at work and it works very well. It's nice to be able to rollout the software on the 50 machines I manage all at once :big grin:

    The server console has a program called NT Install. I open up the console and select the users I want to push it out to and hit the ok button. It pushes out all of the installs over the network. It's pretty cool. Using the server makes it much better to centrally manage all the users and keep track of viruses.

    Symantec Corporate 9, once I get around to updating the server and pushing it out.

    Currently I'm using 8.1, and I wouldn't trust anything else in a corporate environment. It's ease of use and "worryfree" operation for day-to-day activities is great.

    Where do you get Norton Corporate? I haven't been able to find it at places like Newegg.

    I know Dell is a reseller, that's where I got our contract renewed with Symantec last year.

    Corporate is aimed for businesses not consumers, I doubt you'll be able to find it at a place like newegg.
