First - check out the replies I gave to Fred's question "Best and easiest network virus software?" then check out the web site

http://www.woodyswatch.com

These are the same people who brought us the book "The Mother of all Windows Books."

I found their update on the Outlook e-mail security update to be an eye-opener ... apparently M$'s fix is to declare certain file extensions as so dangerous as to prevent you from getting at them.

So for example, suppose you have been sharing Access files via e-mail ... if you install this update, you will not be able to do that anymore ... if the attachment has an extension that could be used by viruses, it ought to connect to AV of your choice, but M$ simply blocks access, not only to youbut also to your AV ... check out the full details in

Personnally I use NORTONs stuff. Professionally I also use NORTONs on my workstations & my servers. .

"Insatiable" has answered your question, and then some. You need to remember that no one piece of software will 'secure' your system, so much as your continued diligence. You need to cover all bases: Internal & External. You need to train your customers to use safe practices. You need to lay out your hardware with security in mind from the onset. Not as an afterthought.

Good luck, smooth sailing.

enjoy :)

For business use, Sophos seems to be the best around. They offer updats via e-mail as soon as they have countered any new virus. Also, they send monthly updates for all versions of all known new viruses. Also, depending on the software you are running, frequently check the M$ website for updates and patches to their applications. Norton puts out very good home use virus protection, with updates available via the web. Sophos is rather pricey, but worth the $$ for a safe network. Norton costs$40-60 depending on where you buy. To protect your network from hackers, check out some of M$ BackOffice products. For home PC protection, you'll need a program to monitor your internet connection to see if anyone is trying to come in. Personally, I'm not sure of a personal PC product that is good for this, but try Insatiable's suggestion. Finally, the M$ Internet Explorer/Outlook fix for attachments is pretty harsh, but it's effective. If you use it, just remember that you be blocked fromveiwing or even reci

To my best of knowledge about virus protection Nortons is the best, and I would also recomend not to invest in mcafee as it is not a program for disposing viruses, only dececting them and sending out warnings to others.

There is a lot of good advice here but I detect some personal preferences in the answers. The major AV players on the market to consider are Trend Micro, Symantec, and NAI (McAfee). These are the top three for the AV industry. That is an undisputable fact. Symantec was setting a good pace the last few years but have little to no showing for 2000. Trend Micro has quite a showing as well to include ICSA certification for Notes environments. NAI (my personal preference) has a very impressivelisting of Security Product Awards with an excellent enterprise management utility. Therefore, for anyone not intimately familiar with your environment to try to tell you what to use is an insult. For that reason, I will not try to sell you on thesolution I'm using, you should try each of their products to see what best fits your specific environment. All three offer excellent coverage on the major platforms as well as auto updates and auto upgrades via internet or ftp. I am and will continue to evaluate over the next six months these three for my environment. Remember this simple process; Assess, Design, Reassess, Test, and then Deploy. For more info, you can contact me via email.
