    WebRoot Enterprise

    Hello fellow Corporate Baby Sitters.....
    I have just installed Webroot Enterprise for a centralize point of scanning/cleaning spyware and adware. There are very few of enterprise versions of spyware solutions that I can find. Webroot is nice, but it lacks several common features that I would have included in the application. For example, if you run a report, you must either print the report or close it out. While the report window is open, you cannot go back the the application. Also, the application cannot scan your domain to see your PC's until the spyware client service is installed and running on the computers you wish to scan. There is also no tool or feature that will push the clients out from the main console. I really like the application, but not willing to pay 4 Grand for 150 users. Maybe the next version will strike my fancy a bit more and I'll take the plunge. But for now, I will continue the search for another solution. Please let me know if you have found a decent solution for your enterprise environment.

    Spysweeper is the best enterprise-scale product we've been able to find as well.

    Thanks for the info. I downoladed this application and installed it on a 2003 server. I could not get the status of the clients to change from pending. I sent some info to tech support on my issues and was told that I needed to install MDAC 2.8 and the .NET framework. These items were already installed then I told them after that incident that Everything was as it should be. The response that I got then was to ensure that file and print sharing was disabled. This really baffled me that I had to turn off file and print sharing>>>
    OK, so to humor them I turned off file and print sharing on one of my test clients stopped and reastarted the services on the client and server. Still no luck. I replied back that maybe I would try one of their later releases.
    However, I'm still searching for a spyware solution from an enterprise point of view
    Thanks. If a miracle allows an application of this caliber to slilp into the market. Please let me know.
    thanks

    Let me clear things up for you fraggin. First, the file/print sharing....you need to turn off SIMPLE file and print sharing (typically disabled by default if you join a domain)....not just any old file/print sharing...
    Next, I would try to perform a manual deployment. Select the policy (typically default), then select policy from the drop down list. Next click on deploy manual agent (or something like that). Create an EXE file. Run that file on the workstation that you are wanting to monitor. Next, click on Agents (within the console) and press refresh. Does it show as installed?

    Let me clear things up for you wildred. This was in regards to counterspy. Webroot is fine with the exception of a few overlooked features in development. Not worth the price for current functionality.

    Correct - that is what I am referring to. When you installed CSE, you need to have simple file and print sharing...in addition the manual deployment should work for you if the push command from the console fails...
    You faulted lack of support (or inadequate support) for CSE, which is why I jumped in to provide "proper" support for this.

    CSE is too unreliable to pay for. I guess that is just my opinion, but, I will not be purchasing it.
