RE: Corporate Antivirus Systems

Hi everyone,

I would suggest doing some research into selecting an appropriate anti-virus first. It doesn't matter how good of a 
management console you have, if the anti-virus can't catch viruses. :-)

Av-Comparatives has recently released its annual comparison in May, located here: 
http://www.av-comparatives.org/images/stories/test/ondret/avc_report22.pdf

Virus-Bulletin also has its own comparatives, which get awarded its VB100 award, located here: 
http://www.virusbtn.com/vb100/archive/results?display=summary (Free registration is required to view)

Based on our research, we selected Eset NOD32 as our Anti-virus, and use their remote administrator server and console.

However, their remote administrator server still has some bugs and requires some polish.

Hello Ramiro,

We have been using Trend Micro Office scan for our
deployments/monitoring. It is all centralized and can be incorporated
into AD deployments fairly easily. It also has a central console that
allows you to view the hostnames/IPs of the devices that have a malware
infection, real-time updates, and SMS/E-mail alerts depending on how you
set the console up. We have about 3500 hosts and this is an extremely
manageable system for us.

My 2c.

Have a great day!

Hi,

can you recommend me some corporate AV system? I mean systems that
consist in a server with a management console
and agents in the clients, which provide easy deployment and maintenance.
I remember one product of McAfee (I can't remember the name right now),
similar to "ePolicy Orchestrator Console". That software
allowed to install agents in PC clients through the AD-based domain.

I'm looking for products like that.

TIA
cheers

Hopefully you're looking for something better than ePO. Heh.

We use, and like a lot, the Sunbelt Software solution - VIPRE
Enterprise - at $WORK. Moved away from McAfee.

Trend and several others also have similar solutions, including, IIRC,
Kaspersky and Norman and even (ptui) Symantec.

Perhaps AVG does also, but I'm not at all current on their offerings.
