Sophos has become bloated rubbish
Heads up for AVG Network Edt here. Moved to it last year. EDU gets 50% discount, and the licences are for 2 years.
Support is good, only needed it once so far, after version 8 updating was broken (proxy stuff was hard coded to use a specific port).
Works nicely and is quite lightweight. Also found another nice feature... marking .swf as a banned file type in email - so it strips out the flash games that the kids like sending eachother!
i have started using comodo anti virus and firewall, free to home and business use, but not central management yet.
good results so far.
SSL Free Firewall Two Factor Authentication Products from Comodo
We use Kaspersky. We had CA e-trust iTM (paid for by county). It is naff, so we paid for the new one ourselves. It has a very good and simple to manage at the network level for all clients, and includes mail filtering, firewall and all the usual goodies. Other schools using the "free" option have suffered virus attack since, losing their IT access for up to two days while CA sorted themselves out. Our Kaspersky desktop firewall simply reported the attempted automated hacks and stopped them.
