Hi,

We are non-profit organisation, we have 7 -10 users, all our computers including a windows server are connected to a network. My question is which would I be better off purchasing the Norton desktop product such as Norton Small Business 1-Year Subscription for 10 Devices or shall I get the Norton endpoint product such as Symantec Endpoint Protection Small Business Edition.

I would go with Symantec Endpoint Protection.  I have used Small Business and the enterprise versions in many organizations and it is reliable.

Are you limited to just Norton Anti-virus protection? If I can suggest, I highly recommend BitDefender GravityZone Business Security. Here is an article posted just a few months ago.
If you are limited to Norton, I agree with Foxluv here.

We use Symantec Endpoint Protection for all our For Profit and Not For Profit clients. At 10 users and above it is a very good product and works well Windows 7, 8.1, and 10.

If you're looking at Norton or Symantec, I'd say you're better off with nothing... well that would mean the Microsoft default product available, not ACTUALLY nothing.

I still use and prefer VIPRE - it's done QUITE WELL for me and my clients.  Great Management Console and relatively inexpensive...

Yes, and SEP has a Server Manager install as well.

Security is a layering process.  No Single product will protect you against everything - the bad guys are always trying to find ways in.  I would install antivirus on the server, but you need to do some research based on what you run on the server to determine what should be excluded from scanning - scanning server components that change frequently could cause a performance hit on the server.
