    Kaspersky Free Virus Scan to see what you AV is missing

    Ok so i have been having loads of training with Kaspersky over the summer holidays (yawn) and they have shown me various different features as to what kaspersky has to offer,

    Kaspersky is now doing a web filtering feature with there software which i thingt is a great idea...

    they have also developed a feature for mobile phones so that is your phone gets stolen it can be tracked, you can even send a txt to the phone and this will delet all the information on the phone, they have made it so that if someone steals your phone and changes the sim the new number will be sent to you via email and again you can either trace the phone or deativate the phone.

    What are you guys using in your schools for your AV and why? i really want a chance to show you what kaspersky does, i can also offer 3 months free on any 3 year deal over 50 users. let me know what you think and if you are interested,

    Hope i havnt stepped over any boundries by adding this thread.

    please have a look at this and see if your AV is missing anything

    Did they cover the Kaspersky Rescue Disk and, if so, did they talk about licensing?

    It looks incredibly useful (basically, it's a live Linux CD with Kaspersky on it but it will scan and fix a Windows machine). It seems to be aimed at the home user so I'm not sure if it's allowed to use it in education etc but if it is then I think it would be well worth having!

    Alternatively, if this isn't allowed, is there a version which is available for education?

    Our LA is moving to Kaspersky in the coming months, and I'm fairly excited about it because the additional features (as compared to our current solution) seem really useful.

    We are using Kaspersky here at the college and it will definately be off our systems by March next year if not sooner. Since we have had it in it has caused no end of issues and we wont miss it.

    Thanks. Looks like it's a no go then.

    We're not likely to change to Kaspersky any time soon - not because there's anything wrong with it (from what I've heard from others, it's pretty good) but just because the hassle of shifting > 10,000 machines to a new virus scanner when a huge number of them aren't even joined to a domain is just too much :-))
