    as the thread title indicates...

    I got two servers with a 40USD/node budget per endpoint

    Seems like Symantec and system center are the only cheap ones fully compatible with 2012. One other solution I found has a 10 node minimum for servers and that's 400
    bucks!

    I think that was Kaspersky.


    And please... no flaming...

    I use symantec at home (norton internet security), a big company wich i had an internship, and now work for 2 weeks :cool: uses F-Secure. Also my regular holiday-job company has a server and some clients, wich use Symantec.

    Both those antiviruses blocked the hack that changed the dns records, where you could get a virus onto your computer. And at home; Havent had a virus ever. we use Norton internet security for years

    So my opinion is that symantec and f-secure are both good, I dont have experience with other antiviruses at the moment, who could offer you a better deal in your situation.

    Might not be the best, but it is free and decent...

    Server Security Matters

    Since I work in security, with Symantec, I thought I'd drop 2 cents in on this thread. When you're securing your servers I'd suggest considering the kind of data you're storing there when evaluating free vs. cheap vs premium protection. Just how important is that malware doesn't get in and if it does, could it spread anywhere else? In general, I'd probably steer clear of free options since they usually don't perform very well in our test environments. Good luck!

    are the servers running Windows Server or a normal version of Windows?

    bcs u can get the Anti-virus and Internet security for like £8 (for the KIS) that works for 364~365days.

    ino this is 8,07usd over ur budget remixedcat, but u can get "Kaspersky Small Office Security" right now for 48,07USD and u save $151.88 (76%) that i think it's a good bargain.

    ino it's only for 5pc's and 1 server but it's a really good price.
