EE:
Server already had symantec mail & antispam protection on Exchange mail-boxes
We just need to purchase antivirus real time scan "only" for this box
any suggestion on which one to get and it's for server only! (every one out there require to pickup 5 licenses!)
please note, symantec antivirus corp edition will not work with this box, not consider.
we found out the "HARD" way....
thank you!

For Antivirus I can recommend ESET NOD32, I have been using it for years in SBS2003 & SBS2008 environments.

for SPAM I would recommend Vamsoft http://www.vamsoft.com

demazter.,
thanks for the speedy answer - recommendation.
my question...
if we already had symantec mail security and premium antispam protection
my guess is ESET NOD32 functioning only on antivirus purpose on server files - real time scanning?  
this is a main concern, we don't want to slow down this box like symantec corp edition
please correct me if I am wrong!
thanks

Correct ESET would be used purely for Virus scanning.

It's very light weight (especially compared to Symantec) and you probably won't even notice it there :-)

When ransomware hits your clients, what do you do?

MSPs: Endpoint security isn’t enough to prevent ransomware.
As the impact and severity of crypto ransomware attacks has grown, Webroot has fought back, not just by building a next-gen endpoint solution capable of preventing ransomware attacks but also by being a thought leader.

demazter,
I just gone to the link provided and I realized that the vendor is also require to pickup 5 licenses due to business / enterprise usage!
do you know any other antivirus vendors out there offer 1 license for server only?

Afraid not most business/enterprise products only allow a minimum of 5 licenses.

How many workstations are there and what virus product are they currently using?

CA is also quite heavy on resources, if Symantec runs well on the clients then just uninstall it from one and install the trial of ESET

You won't be disapointed.
