    System Center Endpoint Protection. Included in my EES and I use SCCM anyway, so managing the AV through that is simple. Others on here are the same; YMMV.

    Yeah of course, what i'm getting at is once its setup, its very easy to maintain. There isn't a great deal of information about clients in the Enterprise Console but i'm sure that will be improved with future releases.

    We had an RM CC3 network before with Symantec EndPoint Protection which was awful compared. RM used to insist on a full virus scan everyday which slowed our machines at the time down to a grinding halt!

    Im sooooooo glad we aren't with RM anymore!

    Currently using Microsoft Forefront Endpoint as we got the licences with our CoreCAL, easy to do basic management via GPO but trialling Sophos at the moment for more granular control and reporting.

    RM VP5.1, hate it.

    Would much rather have ESET on board.

    Sophos since 2004. Apart from the glitch last year which they worked their socks off to help sort out and vastly improved their support as a result it's been fabulous. It does so much more through the Enterprise Console as well - like allowing easy set up of various groups that client machines can be dropped into with clamp downs on a huge array of issues such as blocking use of USB memory sticks and running various programmes.

    Currently using Sophos but I find it a huge PITA, not very informative and flags a lot of stuff as malicious when it's not.

    I've just finished my trial of ESET, looks brilliant, Remote Administration is a doddle!!!

    Just need to get some decent quotes now

    We're currently using Lightspeed's antivirus client, which is seemingly being discontinued (you have to download it from the "archived" section of their website). We previously used Symantec Endpoint Protection - the AV part was fine, but I found the firewall component tricky to configure. I've used NOD32 in the past, I'd probably opt for that again.

    Vipre AV. Good price, good interface and very small impact on end machines.
    @Millgate does very competitive pricing for this

    We're currently migrating from Sophos to Microsoft System Centre Endpoint Protection and all seems to be going well. The Microsoft client does seem to be a bit lighter than Sophos on resources, especially on some of our older computers.

    This will save us a fair whack as we're already licensed through the Desktop Pack on our EES agreement. Well worth a look if you're already licensed for it. Would just need to factor in the SCCM server licences (and time to set it up!) which is hardly anything through EES.
