Looking for enterprise (managed) AV solution for ~ 50 user network
Ah the age old question - which is the best AV software?
We are currently running SAV on all of our 50 workstations. However, they were setup long before our team arrived here and it is not a "managed" solution. All workstations go out and retrieve update definitions on their own and there is now way to see all hosts from a central console.
Since SAV is being phased out (so to speak) I wanted to see what the best solution would be to deploy as a managed solution (Symantec Endpoint Security? Sophos? Kapersky?). Obviously the most important feature is AV protection but it would be nice to find a light client that does not hog resources/memory.
Very effective in the 'updating' function and will probably run at 100% 'current' for DAT files every day.
I replaced Norton/Symantec Enterprise with McAfee/ePO on several networks in my old job and was always pleased with protection and ease of operation.
You should also check the AVG Network application. Even lighter on the workstations, central control -- and cheaper.
Both products have free Trials if you want to check them out.
