we are small business company with 45 computers.
we have been using Symantec Antivirus all these years on workstations & Servers.
we have microsoft exchange email server- so we use the symantec mail security for MS exchange as well.
We wanted to migrate to a newer or better solution.
1) Wanted to check with the experts here as how good are the Appliance Based Antivirus Solutions ?
2) I know that appliance based AV's will not replace the workstations AV scanning. we would still need AV on workstations & Servers. But when we go with any appliance based AV solution at the gateway level, how much of AV maintenance on workstations/server would cut down ?
3) Any inputs from the current hardware appliance AV users ?
we were considering Barracuda Anti-Virus & AntiSpam appliance
