Symantec AntiVirus
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

We have used Barracuda to replace TrendMicro Scanmail, for almost 4 years it has been solid.

    I have the Barracuda Spam & Virus Firewall. It does a great job with Spam. It catches the occational virus, but client side VIPRE does the real anti-virus work on my PCs. Barracuda offers a service as well as the appliance. If you have not already invested in the appliance, compare it with the service to see which is the better fit.
