    I need an virus and spyware protection suite for my office. It will service between 25-50 client machines. What software do you guys run on your networks?
     
  2. Symantec.
    we use 10.2 as the new one (11) sucks

    i have also used McAfee and trend micro.

    symantec took the cake, especially for a network of your size

    I'm pretty sure I haven't seen good results from symantec's corporate antivirus for years.

    9 is EOL as of 4-1-09 and it has missed quite a few things on my network.

    I'm in the process of switching to McAfee Enterprise. ePO is a great managment system.

    Go Sophos!

    One of their SBE products would be a good choice, but depending on your requirements you might want to look at their Endpoint solution.
     
  9. i have heard that mcafee will beat out symantec in an enterprise environment (1000+), symantec takes the cake for small business.

    we had to buy the new one (end point) and downgrade our license to 10.2.
    they will let u do that though

    We use Trend - small footprint, easy to manage. Symantec is a pig.

    We used it too but the price was ridiculous compared to Trend. It didn't catch as much as Trend either (we discovered that after the switch). I did like that you got free licenses for home though.
     
  13. we actually had it crash a server. when it first came out it didnt delete old updates when new ones were added, so as time went on, it had all the defs and eventually filled up the c: drive. you would have to manually delete them. (i would hope they fixed this by now tho). on the clients, the performance was shitty...
