Hi,

I was wondering if EEs could give me some suggestions for managed  AV software. I have tried norton, avg, bitdefender (current), webroot, kaspersky, virus kept on slipping through.

Any ideas?  thanks

No such thing as "best one and only".  Symantec Endpoint (not Norton) and Windows Defender for Windows 10 are both highly rated.

I do not have any clients with the other ones.

Most modern AV solutions offer real-time scanning protection, running in the background always. Beware, failing to keep these solutions updated could make them practically useless.  Some additional features could be included:
• Built-in firewall functionality.
• Intrusion detection system (IDS)/intrusion prevention system (IPS) functionality.
• Application whitelisting/blacklisting functionality.

There is nothing like 100% security every av is vulnerable to zero day attacks so from my experience you can use any AV but I would suggest you to use kaspersky b/c it not only gives you virus and spyware security but also provides device control.
I would suggest you to secure your domain by implementation of policies like device control, Byod, exe via email etc once you are done with all such things then you can achieve certain level of security against viruses, spyware maleware etc.
Hope I have answered your query.

Ladt time i checked, a combination of clamav and either kaspersky or nod32 was almost fullproof assuming you activate in depth scanning of office documents and archives, and enable rezsonable heuristics.
