kenshaw,

I like Trend Micro for server products. Blatantly refuse to use Symantec on a server as i hate their products, McAfee isnt bad either. All of these have centralised management console and in reality where feasible you should run a different AV on your servers to your clients. AVG seems to be up and coming as well though i havent used

Regards,

James

Take a look at:

Trend Micro is a good bet so does AVG. Currently most of the top names in AV has a central console to deploy and manage AV clients so no worries there. Your major concern should be the turn around time and support that you would be getting in times of crisis. TM has a nifty feature to disable access to the network if a particular AV client is out of date for a number of patch. So until it is up to speed and scanned, you can rest assured its safe.

The other factor that you might want to consider is the scanning resourse that is being utilized. Some AV will sap all available memory to scan for virus rendering the unit unable to work with. Do some reading and testing to help you make the final decision.

If you are paranoid, then by all means install 2 compatible AV's. 1 well known AV and the other not so well known. You'll be surprised that some virus are slipping through the major AV companies but are caught by the lower top10 AV's.

Trial and error is your friend here, else you can ask for a demo from dealers if you are gonna be buying in quantities with support given.
