Re: Trend Micro AV

I would think you would find in just about any AV software on the market
an automatic PULLING via tcp/ip, but pushing would require some sort of
server software on everything that would in and of itself be a possible security hole. The typical configuration is to therefore pull updates, using the standard
client side stuff (ftp, fetch, http, whatever).

Pushing is far more of a headache than you want to be responsible for, IMHO.

Hello,

we are evaluating Trend Micro AV  (NS-2) for our organization. We have 3 servers (1 linux + 2 Win x) and more  than 80 
users over a WAN.

I have no recollection of anybody talking about Trend Micro AV in this list.
Can anybody give me feedback on this product. We want AV on server and client, with automatic pushing of updates by the 
server to client.


Also, which is advisable, online AV scanning  vis-a-vis periodic scheduled scanning.


thanks and regards
Pankaj
