Best all in-one Antivirus/Spyware/Malware/Trojan removal software for small business company(35 PC's)



  I need some recommendations and suggestions from the experts here as which software is the better one with regards to protecting our network (35 computers) . We need to make sure we are protected against  Antirvirus,Spyware,Malware,Trojan,root kits ....etc

Its good to have one tool or software which would protect us from all the above.

there's no one program that does a great job at everything... but there are some really good ones out there... symantec isn't one of them

trendmicro client server security is pretty good, you can install it on the server and "push" it to the workstations, it does a decent job

the paid version of malwarebytes is really good since it runs all the time (www.malwarebytes.org)

Despite the comment above, Corporate Symantec Endpoint Protection is very good and does not consume a lot of CPU resource on workstations. If you wish to keep it in your list of alternatives, do not be dissuaded from doing so until (in your evaluation) a better alternative comes along. ... Thinkpads_User

This question, for the most part, is a matter of preference.

I've had some experience with Symantec, McAfee, Panda, Bitdefender and a couple of others. They all had/have their pro's and con's when something could (or did go wrong), however, barring any unforeseen problems, I believe they all work as advertised and work quite well under normal operating conditions.

Good Luck with this.

There's no best antivirus out there, however if you're looking into an small antivirus that don't bugs you with the pops up, long-time loading, auto protect eventhough without scanning, personal firewall.

I would recommand you http://www.eset.com/
Spyware Adware remover, use http://download.cnet.com/Spybot-Search-amp-Destroy/3000-8022_4-10122137.html

I've used them for 2 years + my computer never have to go through formatting due to virus attack, or file missing after removal.

I have used symantec products for almost 5 years and im happy with them.
 
I have seen everything from simple misconfigurations to actual bugs affecting computers running symantec antivirus products. A lot of times people complain about the product they are running because of an outbreak when a simple setting was not turned on i have seen a few times when there was an actual bug on the system that allow a virus to bypass the av but this is less than 1% of the cases. Im my personal opinion 1 product cant do everything you might also want to consider a hardware solution to monitor your network ie adding a hardware firewall and have it inspect the packets might be very useful but that is just a thought. Also whatever product you decide to go with make sure you take the time to read and practice its not true that every product works right out of the box you need to get familiar and learn.
 
I would choose symantec over any other product.  (and no i dont work for them :p)

Hi,

I will recommend Symantec Endpoint Protection for Small Business. Version 12. (SEP 12.0)
This one will best fit your network and there is no overhead of IIS issues as This version doesnt use IIS

Let me first second the notion that there is no best solution.  With that in mind, my favorites are ESET (see paoqiver's link) and Symantec Endpoint Security (latest version).

Just for your own edification here are a couple of comparison sites:
