I am looking for an Enterprise scale solution to spyware. Something like Tea Timer, but that can be managed at the Enterprise level rather than having to touch each machine personally.

Agreed.

>"but that can be managed at the Enterprise level rather than having to touch each machine personally."
Rather than having to touch each machine personally? ie; remote scanning??  If so, I don't think Spy Sweeper has this feature.. does it, Yan?

I just say; put everyone on a typewriter, and go back to snail-mail  :P hehe

Basically that meant wanting to avoid manual intervention on each machine - for scanning, for updates, being able to remote manage all the workstations in the Enterprise without having to touch the machine at all.

We are also looking at Enterprise Spyware solutions. I tried Spysweeper Enterprise but found some issues that ruled it out for us:

- Unable to scan clients while not logged in. ie. no late night  scheduled scans
- Unable to scan other user profiles. ie. User A is logged in, user B's profile is not scanned.

Have a look at PestPatrol. The UI is not very friendly but it does address Spysweeper's shortcomings.

FWIW, we are still looking. Spycatcher Enterprise is next on the eval list.

Good luck,
Ken
