NOD32 Antivirus 2.7
REVIEWED BY MIKE CHAPPLE
Price: Starts at $39 per workstation for a one-year license
provides effective virus and spyware protection, albeit without many of the bells and whistles found in competing products.
Our review supports ESET's claim that NOD32's lightweight design allows it to scan systems more efficiently than the competition. While it might appeal to administrators seeking to scratch out every last cycle of CPU performance, it's not a product for those seeking a highly integrated enterprise solution.
Client installation uses standard deployment techniques--push the package onto client systems, create a login script or distribute installation packages through traditional means. The central administration capabilities require installing the remote administration server, and the remote administration console on administrator systems. We used the wizard-guided installation processes to install all these packages without difficulty.
