    Network Antivirus

    Just wondering what you guys use for your network antivirus solutions?

    I have about 25 computers behind a switch conected to two servers, and am needing to move to a antivirus solution on the servers that will scan the entire network instead of having to have AV on all the workstations.

    I've been looling at CDW, but would like to see what you guys prefer.

    Well, I use CA eTrust Antivirus, but I'm not a fan of it. It's caught viruses/worms/trojans well, but troubleshooting is heck.

    Well, at my company, we use TrendMicro..... Unfortunately, the IT department was too stupid to configure it properly. The AV does not have the necessary permissions to remove the viruses it finds. Everyday, I see it tell me about a new virus on the system, the number never seems to go down.


    It does detect them well though....
    Real security doesn't come with an installer.

    Sounds like a mis-configuration issue. Not a software issue.
    It's very solid software and ranks VERY high compared to
    other corporate solutions.

    The current "Information Security" magazine has a great report card for the 10 major
    players in corporate AV solutions.

    I've never been a fan of Norton anything, not since Symantec bought the company, oh, I don't know...a hundred years ago.

    Depending on the budget, Trend Micro works really well. I've never had conflicts or memory issues with it like some OTHER proggies out there.

    we use Sophos AV. it has a good pricing and detection/removal ration.

    Symantec (norton) corporate works quite well and has decent central management.
    I have a few clients who use it. I just prefer Trend stuff to it.
