Symantic Endpoint Protection is killing us
Posted on 2010-01-11
At least, I think so... we have it installed on most of our PC's here and the server as well. It seems like when it's running a scan it really slows down our database and our exchange server, etc. This morning I had to disable endpoint protection just so everyone could work normally.
It also seems to take up an insane amount of space. I run Spacemonger and I can see about 5 different folders that are all over 5GB, all filled with various .dat files, 2 gig files with no extension, and we're quickly running out of space on our C: drive cause of this program.
Is it really necessary to have? We have a Linksys router with a built in firewall... should I get rid of SEP, and are there better anti-virus protection solutions that I should consider? Thanks!
