[THIN] Re: OT: Question for Trend A/V users

I have Symantec, used it for 5 years, I'm switching off, compared to
Trend and McAfee and Sophos (and probably everyone else) the features
are years behind, not to mention how it's one of the worst resource
hogs.
 
I know a few guys running McAfee in the enterprise for past couple of
year with no complaints.  I think everyone has their horror stories on
every product.  It's the good stuff that people don't like to talk about
unless explicitly asked.

McAfee, No...  Burned way tooo many times by that product and they still
haven't a clue.  Consider Trend Micro or even Symantec as an
alternative.

Trying to find out how people have deployed OfficeScan to a large office
area network.  I'm going to buy McAfee or Trend, so far McAfee is in my
favor because of agent based methods  I have 80 offices, 1200 users
(alwyas expanding) with Symantec Enterprise A/V.  They deploy as
follows: 1 master server for everything, sub servers can be deployed at
other sites so clients can pull updates from those servers, instead of
across WAN links to the master server.


Both Trend and McAfee seem to have similar approaches in setup. 1
master server with options for deployment poitns, which is basically a
location the masrter server updates, then you set clients to those
deployment points to get their updates.  I do not want clients all
updating to my master server for bandwidth issues.

 

My trend SE recommended I pout an officescan server in every site,
instead of 1 officescan server, with 80 deployment points.  Some of the
functionality of OfficeScan server requires MSDE and/orSQL, which I'm
not deloying at every site.  So when I got off the call with the SE, my
interest in trend dwindled some.


I've talked to 1 person on the list who has around 1200 users per server
(said trend recommends 1000 max).  He does all deployments from that 1
PC, so it's not exactly how I plan to operate, but it shows me the SE I
spoke with at Trend's recommendation wasn't exactly necessary.

 

I'm debating towards Trend or McAfee+ePO, and so far McAfee is on top
becaue ePO is agent based which assists greatly in updating.

We have over 8,000 users on the whole Trend Suite.

 

Send me a note off list with any specific questions that you have.

        Do any of the people on the list use Trend OfficeScan on client
and/or server in a wide area deployment across many offices?  I'm trying
to get some real world info on large deployments.
