I am looking for a site that compares the major Anti-virus players in the market right now: Mcafee, Norton, Panda, CA & Trend Micro......My organization is currently using CA's eTrust InnoculatIT v 6.0. We are looking to switch shortly

Any site\links that you know that gives a COMPLETE comparison of all features & prices etc ?

We are a small business of around 20-25 PCs with 12 servers.  However I've been researching and have found the following are rated quite highly:

Panda's latest offering Business Secure (includes admin secure)

http://www.pandasoftware.com/products/business/

Trend Micro's Client & server suite for small business

http://uk.trendmicro-europe.com/smb/products/products.php?prodgroup=10&family=18&id=89&rightnav=0,0


Any thoughts on these from using them or stories from other techies ?  Do these deal well with spyware threats from browsing the net ?

Thanks again
Steve

I've never used Trend Micro, so can't comment either way on it. But a short while after using Panda weird things began to happen on some of our systems, virus like things. And after going to the symantec website and doing a web based virus scan found multiple viruses running like crazy and Panda wasn't doing anything to stop them. We've since switched to Symantec's Corporate edition virus software and it catched everything tossed at us. It's caught some instances of spyware from the web, but not everything, so hardening your system with Spybot Search & Destroys immunization or a similiar product is always a good idea.
