We're in the middle if deciding which AV vendor to recommend going forward.
We have been a Trend shop for years now, but we've had too many machines hit lately to put up with it any longer.
We are looking at KES, but are wary of the AVG back-end. We've always put our trust in name brands, and don't quite know what to make of this vendor.
We're tossing up between Sophos, Eset, KES or McAfee. Symantec, Trend, CA and Kaspersky are definitely no-go for us.
If anyone can offer some friendly advice for ANY vendors in regards to quality of product as well as K integration, and would be appreciated. We just want to pick the right one, so don't necessarily use my above list as a guide.
As I said, we are considering KES, and that's my instinct, we just want to do our homework, plus the boss hasn't just said yes to kes.
email@example.comWe've been a Eset shop for awhile now, no problems as yet.
I herd rumours that you could enable a setting and monitor the event log entries, but after looking on these forums it doesnt look possible.
NOD32 v3 is pretty good tho, not as speedy as v2 but with some minor tweaks its on par.
chadl2I had all my clients Pre-Kasey on Symantec. Up through version 10 I was mostly content with it, but SEP 11 destroyed the product in my opinion. Management became a nightmare, system performance was terrible, and it didn't even stop a few viruses on my clients networks...
When I rolled out Kaseya KES ended up being a big win for me. My client immediately noticed a performance boost, which I attribute mostly to the removal of SEP. Having the integrated deployment and interface with Kaseya is such a huge time saver it seems like a no brainer to me.
