What is the best antivirus solution for Windows 2000 Professional and Windows 2000 Server? I have 60 workstations.
Most major antivirus vendors offer the same solutions, only in different packages. Some major features you should look for are:
Central Management of all devices to allow easy signature/software updates.
Supported advanced NT specific features. Exchange and SQL always cause issues due to performance factors.
Quick virus signature updates or quick response to real-world events. Updates should be the same time the virus is discovered, otherwise the product is useless.
Either remote or local administrative control. Before I simply suggest one vendor over another, I will recommend you develop business requirements, then look for the product. Once a valid set of business requirements is accomplished, I suggest looking at www.mcafee.com or www.symantic.com. These are, more or less, the leaders at this time. Answers to questions such as these are not always simply providing a product name, but instead reviewing the procedures, features and requirements.
