AV app of Choice?

By williamrcastillo ·
I jsut want to ask some opinions on AV app of choice. I have always used Symantec Enterprise on nets the I have managed. I just took over a new one and they are use CA Inoculate IT. I am tempted to pitch it ifor what I know best, but before I do I ham hoping to hear what some of y'all might have to say about the CA product and even Syamntec and Macaffie.

Not necessarily the opinions of others...

by 3dcad In reply to AV app of Choice?

I usually only play the wallflower on all the discussions here, but this one struck a nerve. I can only trust Norton, since McAfee let me down numerous times. Things snuck in and disabled McAfee, but my personal system, loaded with NAV, blocked and deleted it.

trust Norton or McAfee?

The answer is NO, NO, NO. Both of these companies are living on reputation, and are slacking off in real time.

Get AVG, or Antivir.

Norton or Mcafee : Not good antivirusproducts !

by Pcfreakske2000 In reply to Not necessarily the opini ...

Hi all ,


First of all : I'm new at TechRepublic , so I just wanted to say "hello" to you all.

Well, I don't trust both ( Norton or Mcafee ) ever again.

Nowadays , I use Panda Platinum Internet Security 2005 and it works well here.

Except the built-in firewall , it doesn't work properly here. So , I downloaded and installed the ZoneAlarm ( free version ).

I can give you all one advice : Don't ever install Norton or Mcafee again. Those apps are not worth to be installed.


I don't trust those freeware antivirus tools , I would recommend paying for it. If something goes wrong , you can always contact someone of the Customer Service or something.


Greetings ,

Trend Micro or Sophos

by jdgretz In reply to AV app of Choice?

The title pretty much says it all.

I use and recommend Trend Micros'series of products. For stand alone machine, their Internet Secutity Suite is excellent. In the corporate world they have a whole catalogue of server based and managed programs to suit your needs. For my clients who have a single server and do not host their own email, I use their Small Medium Business (SMB) suite and then add Messaging if they are using Microsoft's Small Business Server. For larger, more complex environments, they have gateway appliances, products that work with Lotus/Domino, Netware, Linux, EMC, Exchange and more.

Their stuff just works. I don't worry about it, it simply does what it is supposed to do - stop virus, spam (takes a bit of tweaking), and spyware/adware - it's hard to ask much more from the product.

Nah , I don't trust those free antivirus apps

by Pcfreakske2000 In reply to Trend Micro or Sophos

Hi all ,

@jdgretz : Nah , I don't trust those freeware antivirus products.

I would rather pay for it and get support rather than take one of those free ones and getting no support at all.

I use Panda Platinum Internet Security 2005 and it works well.

I would never recommend anyone to install Norton of Mcafee anymore. I had those for a while but they suck at keeping your computer virus clean.

Plus , Norton or Mcafee "eat" too much of system resources , which cause your computer to run slow.

I trust PandaSoftware and they are doing a good job on keeping your computer clean.
The good part is that they include a special technology , called TruPrevent Technologies , into their products , which keep your computer safe from unknown virusses and other threats.

And this really works , I have seen it in action.

I think PandaSoftware is doing a great job putting that innovating technology into their products.

Kaspersky

by dark_15 In reply to AV app of Choice?

We use Kaspersky Antivirus here at my organization. We got a decent deal on it when we switched from Trend Micro. It is a bit quirky at times (and uses a good deal of resources during AV scans), but it has caught and killed so many little bugs, virii, and other malware. It also does a full virus scan quickly, and it has paid for itself over and over again. The administration console is pretty intuitive as well.
