If you use PCs for work, then you must deal with the constant threat of viruses. Not only can they take an individual computer down, but they can also wreck havoc on your network. You must have some sort of Anti-Virus solution, but there are many different options. To help you make this important decision, TechRepublic suggests using what we have dubbed the D.I.C.E. (Difficulty, Investment, Capability, and Expandability) framework. We will walk through each of these points so you will be able to apply them to your situation, and then we will help you pick the solution that is right for you. To help you apply the D.I.C.E framework, we have created a sample Excel worksheet that incorporates the framework described and have included it in the downloadable zip file.
