Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
First off, sorry for all the work related posts lately. I'm sure something will go wrong with my wang or I'll need to remember some movie from the 80's eventually and I'll make a more interesting post.
So I need to get a new AV solution for 100ish computers and 7 servers. These are all Microsoft. We also need anti-spam and whatnot for our Exchange 2003 server. Currently we have McAfee, which I inherited, which is mostly a piece of shit. I got it working a lot better than my predecessor, but I still don't like it. Spam-wise it's okay, AV-wise it doesn't stop much. If it detects and "deletes" something usually that is just a heads up to me that the machine is infected. Most the threats now seem to be more malware and trojans than tradtional viruses, and McAfee is shit for catching those.
So I'm trying to choose between Symantec Protection Suite Small Business v3.0 and Trend Micro Worry-Free Business Security Advanced. I've spoken to 2 people about it, one said go with Symantec and the other said Trend Micro. Symantec is slightly cheaper. I was wary about them, as previous experience with the consumer versions of their products (Norton) has been very unimpressive (even worse than McAfee's home stuff), but I'm told that they've gotten a lot better. My only experience with Trend Micro has been using their online scans, which have been decent if not great.
