How well does AVG Corporate compare with Symantec Antivirus 10.0.1?
Posted on 2007-08-01
We are currently running Symantec Antivirus Corporate Edition, version 10.0.1. Although I have never been a fan of Norton's desktop antivirus (you all know the reasons), in a networked work environment their Corporate edition seems to function fairly well. However, we're coming up on renewal time and of course I'm looking for a less expensive solution (yet still reliable). At home I use AVG free edition and have been happy with it for a few years. I know they have a Corporate edition, but I have no experience with it. I am looking for comments from experts who have used AVG's corporate edition in a domain environment. How well does it function? Is the database updated quickly and accurately? Does it maintain a low profile (in regards to system resources)? And, of course, from folks who have used both AVG and Symantec's corporate products, how well to they compare?
Oh yes, domain consists of about 160 workstations (all Win XP Pro) and 15 servers (ranging from W2K to W2K3, with an Exchange server, etc.)
I'll probably keep this question open for a few days to get as much input as possible. Thanks to all for their suggestions.
