Re: AV recommendations for 2008 & R2?
Personally I still like McAfee more then other products I used so far.
It’s one of the better management consoles, easy deployment and patching etc.
Symantec, well no…
Microsoft, Not as good as McAfee in detection however updating via WSUS is nice.
Still though, not as nice reporting and you need a horrifying system (SQL Server) and some have servers for management and deployment
Endpoint protection (I believe it includes AV?) according Gartner 2009
