Need Anti-Virus Advice

By theiqa ·
Our office just got a T1 line, 25 computers running Win 98SE and XP on Novell server. We have no Anti-Virus. Looking for most economical but most effective solution. Do we buy multiple licenses and install on all client machines? Or is there a server side app that will automatically push it out to each machine???????

Good choice

We run 4 different types of AV here, Trend is probably the highest on my list for an experienced person. Learn it well, and it will be great.

What the Trend misses the SAV catches

by TITSSNI In reply to Good choice

We have Trend on the email servers and everything that passes through and hits the desktop is immediately killed by SAV. I must say that over the past few versions SAV has gotten much better at the age of v.9.x.

Better use of resources and more configuration issues to protect you. Keep in mind that that client is as good as you configure it to be, so if it's not configured properly you will not get the full potential of the client no matter which one you use.

Your enviroment and knowledge will depcit which one you will choose at the end of the day.

I'll check that out

by house In reply to Symantec's not very resou ...

...but the Symantec Corp doesn't require as much from the clients as the standalone Professional. I think that it is a more expensive licencing route though, than that of McAfee - or any other antivirus for that matter.

It's the best AV out, latest version is 4.0 and go to home edition and download the setup and then its self explanatory while your installing. limewire doesn't give you viruses you have to manually download one off it.
