I have to make a decision between a few antivirus products.  Do you experts have any experience in using any of the following products and are there any that would be superior to the others:

Symantec Endpoint Protection Small Business Edition
Microsoft System Center
Bitdefender Client Security and Management Server

I need to centrally see what is going on the network, but need a system that uses less resources and still gives good protection.

Symantec Corporate and Bit Defender both rate high in enterprise A/V reviews. I use SEP myself and at all my clients.

Microsoft is OK, but it does not rate as high. The corporate product is not free and SEP is not expensive in quantity.

Is Symantec Corporate the same as Symantec Endpoint Protection Small Business Edition

Also, do I purchase based on how many endpoints I have?  Is there a cloud management console?

Best cloud management,  IMHO, is faronics. SEPM (SEP) is very good.  Comodo is easy for remote administration, but users tend to dislike it. MBAM corporate is very good.

Lot of Experts don't like Symantec products. We use also Bitdefender 10'000 clients.

Have a look:

You buy the number of seats you need for Symantec Corporate (SEP) and the management console comes.

I have not tried Cloud as I think it is a different product.

Lot of Experts don't like Symantec products <--- I know. I don't agree and outside experts do not agree either.

Both Symantec and Bitdefender are good. And you can use Symantec Endpoint which is protect well with small resources and many features.
