Best Anti-Virus tool for a small size business
Posted on 2013-06-21
I would like to find another alternative to AVG for a small sized business. We have about 35 users, and 5 or so are remote.
Just a few days ago we were hit by what AVG knows it as Luhe.Mazec.L and Symantec sees it as Trojan.Zbot. Anyhow, AVG didnt do anything to prevent this and it spread like wildfire to the file server and 10 workstations before I was able to realize it and cut it off at its source.
AVG never even seen it coming, it picked up a threat later after the fact the workstations were already infected and the worm already spread to all network shares. I scanned that file today with AVG and it looks like the most recent update of today, found it as Luge.Mazec.L...
Anyhow, long story short.. I would likle to get your opinion and suggestions on a good quality that would be fit for a small sized business?
I'd like to have email scanning, removable drives, real-time downloads.. basically I would like it to scan the file before it can even make its way to the workstation. Also, of course one that has a very good reputable definition updates and in the event it does get infected it can resolve the issues..
AVG was just crap.. not only did it detect it after the fact it was infected, it was not able to remove the files.. lol.
It took 16 hours of reasearching and 4 other 3rd party softwares for me to finally find the right tools to remove the threat.. crazy!
