    We are a small business - 9 employees and computers. We
    do not have a designated system administrator. We need
    info on the best antivirus software for our office.
    Currently using Norton AV, but we have a mish mash of
    versions, etc. We are trying to get better organized.
    Any suggestions? I am currently looking at the new
    Norton AV and also McAfee VirusScan ASAP.

  2. Either would be good. I personally suggest McAfee.

    A lot depends on whether your network is a domain or workgroup. If you
    have a domain with a server, then you should look at a corporate
    solution where the av's server portion resides on the server computer
    and the client portion resides on the workstations. The server computer
    needs to have Internet access so it can get the new virus definitions
    and push them out to the workstations. Although I personally don't like
    the consumer-level Norton AV, the corporate Symantec AV is quite good.
    I also like F-Prot for servers/workstation setups.

    If you only have a workgroup, then you might as well go with individual
    av installs on each machine. For that, especially if there is no
    sysadmin, I would recommend EZ-Trust antivirus, which is fairly
    inexpensive and easy to maintain. The url is http://www.my-etrust.com.
    I use F-Prot (http://www.f-prot.com) on my Windows machines, but it
    requires a little more user interaction than most end users want to
    have.
