"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

There is no 'best', everyone will choose there personal favourite. Mine is AVG Internet Security, we use it on all our systems, it is very straightforward to use, has an excellent detection rate and is very competatively priced. As resellers we can also offer a healthy discount as well :)

if you  have wsus  go microsoft forefront less  headache  updating, if  not well  i wouldn't install  avg  or kasper on my network, for nods32  well i heard it  is good  but  never  tested. I use mcafee enterprise  edition in my  network and in another  i use forefront, reporting wise  forefront  rules, if  set up correctly and mcafee rules. However, forefront is way  easy to maintain and setting compared  to mcafee.
