Purchase software to keep viruses at bay

Find out which antivirus software product is right for your organization.


Typical viruses attempt to delete or corrupt data, but more recent viruses actually attempt to damage system hardware. As a result, viruses have increasingly become a major threat to IT organizations. Fortunately, you can purchase antivirus software to protect every computer on your network.

Our Antivirus Software Pack includes three tools, described in detail below, that will help you decide whether antivirus software will meet your organization's needs, choose the right antivirus software vendor, and check vendors' references.

The Gap Analysis: Antivirus Software tool's three detailed worksheets (Requirements, Gap Report, and Solution Benefits) will help you determine whether a gap exists between your current system's virus protection capabilities and your organization's future requirements. If you establish that a gap exists, our tool will also help you determine if antivirus software can help you close those gaps.

The Vendor Selection Checklist: Antivirus Software tool's detailed worksheets (Criteria Ranking, Vendor, and Comparison) will help you assess the antivirus software products and services available from various vendors so that your determination is based on the facts and issues most applicable to your organization's needs.

The Vendor Reference Questionnaire: Antivirus Software tool allows you to record important contact and demographic information on up to six separate references. Find out how each reference rates the vendor(s) on 10 critical, technology-specific questions. When you’ve completed the data from all the references you’re contacting, the tool will pull the information into the Comparison worksheet for a side-by-side look at how their vendor ratings stack up.
