I need to protect a bunch of small business offices, and have not had to purchase virus protection on this kind of scale before
has anyone had to get license for a kind of small scale ( about 5 offices with about 4 computers in each )?
I'm looking for really good protection and ease of license management. Any suggestions?

    Go for ESET Endpoint security. Documentation is clear, and if you find a good local reseller, they have the expertise on questions you might have.
    Price is good, even better with more users/years. Flexible. Low on system resources.

    No anti-virus software is 100% effective. In view of that, I don't pay for it, I just use Microsoft's free Security Essentials backed up by MalwareBytes and SuperAntiSpyware for spyware protection.

    If I did ever get an infection, I'm bulletproof because I maintain up-to-date images of my system. I use Acronis True Image, but there are a number of other excellent products available. If I should be infected, I'm only 20 minutes away from restoring health by restoring the latest image of my C drive.

    I avoid the problem of overwriting my most recent data by keeping all of my data on a separate partition (or drive). It's easy to transfer your user folders, Dropbox, Evernote, and other data to such a partition, then when you restore your Windows and programs partition on C:\, your data remain untouched of D:\.
