AntiVirus for Win2000 Server, XP Laptops (not connected to server)
Posted on 2005-03-01
I am looking for advice regarding small business antivirus software. We currently have Symantec AntiVirus Corporate Edition which is up for renewal. However, I'm not sure if it is the best choice for our situation, which is: we have a Windows 2000 Small Business Server running Exchange. There are a couple users on the LAN connected to this server but most of our users are in the field and do not connect to the server at all, except through Outlook Web Access to check and send email. These users laptop's are setup so they have limited accounts (XP).
So, is the client/server functionality of Corporate Edition something we don't need and shouldn't be paying for?
Are there disadvantages to running Corporate Edition on user's laptops with limited accounts?
What would be the best fit for this situation?
With the maintenance agreement up for renewal I am now facing the possibility of having to manually install new licenses on each user's laptop (and my user's are spread over an area of maybe 100 mile radius, which would mean a lot of driving!). There must be a better way!
Any help would be appreciated!
