    We'll be swapping to NOD32 on our Admin Domain in April, can get a great price on it with being educational.

    Probably stick with Symantec Corporate on our CC3 domain, purely because of the whole RM thing etc.

    No, you need not. We had the exact same issue.

    We use Sophos at our school as it is what our LEA purchased. Don't have any problems with it and don't find it to be a 'resource hog' at all.

    However, I would recommend Kaspersky, use it at home and would like it if we could purchase it

    I'd be interested to know what you use? What's so bad about Sophos anyway? I think it's quite good but you've got a real downer on it?

    The previous version of Sophos had 'issues'. Actually, it had lots of 'issues' The current version seems quite stable and pleasent actually, but central management could be better.

    I wouldn't recomend Kaspersky from all the hassle we have had with it
    If you think sophos is resource hungry, give kaspersky a whirl :P

    Heh, you don't know the half of it !!

    It's a resouce hog.
    The management system of it is a joke, for a simple bit of software they have made it overly complicated. How many services ? How many IDs does it create ?
    Too many false positives.
    Updates are slow.
    Management front end showing wrong information.
    Not actually detecting and dealing with infections.
    And of course when it was last called it a pile of poo poo by someone Edugeek was threatened with court action.

    Sophos apologises for going legal on school techies ? The Register

    Sophos is cheap for a reason......you figure it out. As for what AV solution I think is best ? For me it has to be Trend - if you shop around you will get a good deal and even part payment back on your exsisting AV solution if you are stuck in a deal.
    But as you say some people like Sophos, some however have seen the light and tend to agree with myself and have moved away to other AV solutions. NOD & Kaspersky seem to be other Admin's favorites at the moment.

    All I can see is that no one can agree around here. The best solution is as clear as mud. If someone had to choose an AV solution from the postings on here they might just shoot themselves for a short, pain free death.

    That article shows Sophos apologising for their mistake. To err is human to forgive is divine?
