F-Secure Anti-Virus Small Business Suite VS Trend Micro Worry-Free" Business Security Advanced

Dear Experts,

I have a customer (small business) who would like to purchase either "F-Secure Anti-Virus Small Business Suite" or "Trend Micro Worry-Free" Business Security Advanced" anti-virus.

Which of the two anti-viruses should I recommend to the customer? Where can I get a detailed comparison of the two anti-viruses, especially performance on workstations and servers, virus detection rates, available modules, ease of use etc.?

Regards,

Brian.

Hi bmatumbura,

I would recommend using Trend as I've been using it for quite a while and have never been let down. It's easy to configure, not as resource intensive as F-Secure and not very expensive.

With the conbination of F-Secure installation issues as notated here in this review from PC world ( http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2328586,00.asp ) and the comparison that F-secure doesnt keep pace ( http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2330479,00.asp ) I would state right off the bat if you are stuck on these two then Trend Micro is going to be the better choice of the two.

At a lower price point, better reviews, and a simply better product between the two, Trend Micro will always provide a better solution for the two.

P.S. I will offer there are other solutions out there that might be better for your clients needs depending on what exactly they are going to be doing. I personally use Kaspersky for the majority of my clients after moving from Mcafee. The ability to control each and every part of the program with a simple interface (if you choose it) appeals to me for simplicity, and it makes it easy for me to explain to my clients.
