A/V software

I've probably asked before, but really don't want to search thru all
the msgs looking for it, so I'll just ask again.

What do you run for anti-virus software at your location? What do you
like about it, what don't you like? etc etc

Re: A/V software

We run VIPRE on the workstations and Windows servers. I think it's
pretty good - it sure doesn't bog down performance. We did get Vundo on
a server, though - did not like that it let that through.

If you want everything to work... switch to Linux and dump
Windows 🙂

K, thanks for the info. Guess we've narrowed down to Sophos & McAfee.
I really wanna go Sophos, but boss has McAfee stuck in his head.

McAfee has a HUGE footprint... will be the LARGEST application on
most of your desktops (over 100M in size).

If that's interesting...

Just checked on mine (we're running it temporarily off a contract), the
mcafee folders are over 220MB, ouch!

I've been running Sophos here for years and I'm real happy with it.

Novell....it does a server good!

Re: A/V software

Another vote for Vipre. It's a fantastic product.

We're using McAfee Enterprise version for A-V now along with CounterSpy, but
looking to move to Vipre next F.Y. McAfee is like an old rusty F350, sure
it runs, but it takes up a lot of space in the driveway and you're always
watching out that no one runs into it.

One thing I like about Sunbelt Software is how easy it is to contact
technical support and talk to people w/o going thru many layers.

Re: A/V software

Running Kaspersky here. We've ran (bloated) Symantec for years and often
run into problems but Kaspersky hasn't given me
any headaches. It runs well on NetWare, Linux, Mac and Windows. Love the
fact it gets updated every hour. We run our own
Kaspersky update server instead of downloading the updates directly from
Kaspersky's Update servers.
