I am going to moving from Symantec Antivirus at my work. This has not been an easy decision for me. I have used Symantec Antivirus for almost for ten years. I have depended on it and it has not let me down on a large scale. However version 11 is absolutely horrible. It takes up a lot of resources and is not easy to configure. Symantec has moved from a traditional Antivirus to a security agent that has Antivirus, Firewall, Intrusion detection, and client security.
I am going to looking at Sophos Antivirus and Kaspersky Antivirus. I am told that both have an enterprise solution. I have no experience with either software. I will also be looking at Cisco Security Agent. I know that it is a completely different approach. With Cisco Security Agent you have a list of trusted application and can block all the others. That is a very simple explanation. From what I can understand there are a lot more details.
As I learn more about each product I will be blogging about them.
