JeremyWModerator December 5, 2013 at 11:04 pm #270763 Re: Windows server 2012 standard – Anti Virus MSE was never available for any version of Windows Server. The only free AV for servers that I know of is ClamAV but it gets bad reviews. If this is a production server, spend the money and get a decent AV. pjhutchMember December 9, 2013 at 4:04 pm #312770 Re: Windows server 2012 standard – Anti Virus You can install Microsoft Forefront Protection which should be available for installing on Servers. Although these are discontinued. http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/forefront/Bb852242 ClamAV is no good as it does not do On Access protection. TRy third party products such as McAfee, Symantec, Kaspersky etc biggles77Spectator December 16, 2013 at 6:08 am #213024 Re: Windows server 2012 standard – Anti Virus I believe this could be worth a look. http://technet.microsoft.com/en-au/security/jj900682.aspx Author Posts Viewing 4 posts - 1 through 4 (of 4 total) You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
