Need advise on buying antivirus program

By hiiq32 ยท 4 replies

  1. Hi,

    My company uses Symantec end point manager on the small biz 2003 server with the program on 75 pc's.

    Each client has a gold shield with green ball on it on the task bar to show it's connected to the server software.

    It costs $1500 a year to renew to continue updates. Anyone have a suggestion as to a cheaper program that will keep us up to date at a lower cost?

    or is this about the going rate to expect to pay for a virus protection system.

    I believe we're charged approx $20 per pc to renew the sub, every year.

    Thanks for your advice in advance.

    Ira

    I'm not sure really, but this may help a bit. I noticed the prices are set for the 'lowest' meaning the cost can be more. All of them on the list can work for 75 computers.

    I think its really a matter contacting each AV company for details.

    comodo makes a pretty good free antivirus and its one of a very few that lends itself to use from businesses. the drawback is that its not very user-friendly. techy people won't have a problem with it, but it requires some initial setup and configurations that can intimidate and confuse a normal user. I had the same run around a while back and you are actually getting a decent deal. $20 per machine isnt bad.
