View Full Version : AntiVirus software needed for a corporate environment

08-04-2003, 02:00 PM
Im after Anti-Virus software, for a small-business corporate environment.

Approx 10-15 PC's

Needs RealTime protection with a minimal hit on system performance.

Needs to allow scheduled updating

Needs to be prefferrably cheap (ex. NOT expensive!)

Now for the Wants:

Update from central LAN server

And there was one other thing.. but Ive forgotten.

Now, What software would you guys all reccommend for the job?

Pricing I guess is the biggest shadow in the matter, Im after something for a currently small-business, with the ability to easily expand. So seeing as its a small business, I'd like the pricing to suit :-)

CA eTrust Antivirus v7 is $1606 RRP (ex GST) for a 25 user pack which is pretty good value. You can add user packs such as a 5 pack for around $200 RRP (ex GST). This was formerly called InoculateIT and is a new version.

You can download a free trial from their website - http://cai.com

AVG is good although don't ask me about a small business environment.

>>And there was one other thing.. but Ive forgotten.
Yes.... yes.... I've forgotten the answer too.

Yeah... but AVG free is for personal only, which I use at home.

Im wondering about it in a coprorate environment...

AVG is good in a corporate environment. You update the server virus definitions, and all the clients auto-update from there. Works sweet, low footprint in the OS.

It costs $ of course, and thats for the right to use it, and you get the server update application. I know one company using it, and they are pleased with the automatic nature.

As far as I could see, the underlying program is the same as the free version.
