Antivirus renewal for business of 500+ users? Not sure to renew...

Hi guys,

Our companies anti-virus renewal has come up. We're using Sophos Endpoint which I absolutely hate, as I'm never able to get rid of a virus properly or just manage properly. Maybe it's because I haven't learned how to use it effectively?

I have used Kaspersky before in my previous company and it just seemed to much more user-friendly for the network environment.

Do you guys have any recommendations? Any ideas as to whether it's worth renewing or maybe going for a new solution? (bearing in mind I'll need to uninstall 500+ AV's and deploy again).

Thanks

Everyone has there favorite. If Kaspersky works for you and you know how to use it, it will be just fine for you.

I use Symantec Endpoint Protection (NOT NORTON) myself and clients and it works fine. It is good for central management.

I'm a happy user of Eset. For business licences the management app is free, so I can see at a glance problems in my whole network, plus you can set a central location as an update server, to save bandwidth.

HTH,
