Need advice on AV product for windows web server

Need advice on AV product for windows web server

Need advice on AV product for windows web server

(OP)
Hi,

We have just had an absolute nightmare with AVG 9 and have now removed the software and obtained a refund.

However, I would like advice from anyone who can recommend a replacement anti-virus which meets the following requirements.

1. No more than £100.00 yearly subscription costs.

2. Must NOT have firewall capabilities.

3. Suitable for use in a Windows 2003 Standard R2 with SP2 web server environment running IIS6, ActiveState Perl v5.8.8 build 820 & MS SQL 2005.

We use Sophos for internal domain / network, but single web server licence is too expensive and so need alternative.

Any advice really is appreciated.

Thanks,
1DMF

I always recommend NOD32 from Eset.  Not sure about pricing for your org, but I have been using them for years and VERY satisfied.

I second the suggestion for nod32.

Nod32 or Avira Antivir would likely be my #1 choice.  You could try each one (different times), and see which seems to work better for you, and go from there, I suppose.

I've asked my reseller about NOD32, but that Avira, can't seedm to find an appropriate version for a web server.

I went to ProxyVersions and WebGate, but it keeps telling me I have to buy 10 user licences, if so i'm not interested, it's a webserver, I need a server version, not user version.

There is only one user on a web server, they all use the same account.

It doesn't look like they do a version that meets my criteria.

Any other suggestions?

Not 100% sure about whether there are different types of licensing for different server types, but here's at least one reference from Avira directly.  It seems they have a server license as well:
http://www.avira.com/documents/products/pdf/en/man_avira_antivir-win_server_en.pdf

And when I went directly to their site, and looked, I saw lots of server products, but nothing specified for a web server:
http://www.avira.com/en/products/index.php

I'd personally just contact them directly to see what they say if you want to check into that option.

I use NOD32 on my server, which also runs my web server, so not sure what the issue is there.  Works perfectly on mine.

You've lost me, what issue are you refering to, that you are not sure about?

kjv1611, I'm going to give NOD32 a trial, when I get the time, my reseller has heard of them and can supply it, which is a good sign.

But soooo busy, it'll have to wait till I get a chance.

I'll let you know how I get  on.

I think I misunderstood your post, I read it as you could not find a NOD32 version for your server, but perhaps you only meant that comment for Avira?

lol - ok no problem. I did mean Avira.
