SMB Antivirus Suite Recommendation?
Posted on 2014-01-07
I apologize if this has been covered elsewhere but am looking for a new AV solution. We run about 100 desktops, ~7 servers, primarily W7 x64 environment, Watchguard firewall and Google/Postini for antispam. We used Symantec Endpoint Protection for years but switched to Kaspersky Endpoint Solutions 3 years ago.
The reasons we left SEP: client footprint was huge; terrible tech support since merger with Veritas; hated the proprietary management console. Reasons we're going to leave KES: problems with admin console maintaining communications with clients, terrible experiences with deployment and upgrades, incompatibilities with some of our business applications.
One of our VARs that I trust is recommending McAfee but the few comparisons I can find online do not give it overwhelmingly positive reviews. In fact the only product I saw that seemed to be well liked was Vipre and and I've never heard of it.
Would appreciate any guidance you could provide. Thank you!
