    We've been using Symantec for years and moved to Sophos last Summer.

    It was a learning curve getting things right with Enterprise Console at first; (there are required GPOs for deployment) but when it's all up and running it's great.

    Automatic deployment, centralised exceptions/reporting/updates etc. They also provide you with a standalone version for staff laptops (that do not update from the local server)

    We have found it to be non-intrusive and even ran well on the older XP machines we used to have.

    A quick note though; if you use Impero make sure you have a central exception for it - It doesn't come up as a virus but blocks some files and disables Impero on certain machines. It is done from the Enterprise Console and is very straightforward to fix.

    Sophos here, never had any issues in 5 years, client is running on old hardware without any issues. I am looking for cheaper alternatives but Sophos is already reasonably priced.

    Just moved to ESET here as our Vipre renewal was ridiculous.

    Give Kelly at BIST a call for pricing. We got 3yrs cover for 140 machines for just over £1k inc vat.

    We use trend micro and i found that it works perfectly for us. Have never had an issue with it. It has very few false positives if any. We have been using it for just over 2 years.

    Have heard really good things about ESET, I've never actually used it on a corporate network though.

    We use Sophos, with Endpoint Protection and Management Console.

    Thank you

    Thank you for your helpful feedback.

    For those of you who are using ESET are there any items of concern regarding either config or protection from the product?

    Thanks again.

    Configuration took about 20 minutes. Pieces of cake!

    The protection seems very good. Since we went to it, we've not had any kind of infection and, according to reporting, it catches about 5 nasties a day from various sources.

    Another very happy ESET customer here. Paid around £1k for 3 years on 150 endpoints (Endpoint Antivirus).

    Deployment and updating is seamless and invisible to end users. Reporting and monitoring of detections and problems (such as clients not updating) is straightforward and useful. Support when needed has been perfect, and the footprint on system resources is probably one of the best you're going to get, especially considering the effectiveness of ESET's engine.

    Were using System Center Endpoint Protection. No problems as yet, doesnt cost us a penny extra and I don't have to suffer any more 3rd party consoles.
    Result!

    Our LEA provide it to us here, we shifted from Symantec when I first started to Kaspersky 6 then, recently upgrading to V10 of Kaspersky, was going ok until the upgrade, seem to be minor issues with nag tabs now and such which we cannot turn off and are dealing with, its not a bad product, infinitely better than Symantec and I like things like USB scanning now working properly.

    Thought I should update this for anyone in the same review scenario.

    Finally decided on Eset and have been very impressed with it so far.

    Ease of install excellent both client and server.

    Management console still getting to grips with but so far so good.

    System resource impact minimum on our ancient hardware.

    Support from Eset tech support excellent.

    Sales support really good as well.

    Very happy with the choice.

    Regards.
