Hello All, been a while since I posted here. Currently at my Organization we have adopted Trend Micro antivirus and it has worked fairly well. We used to have SEP and it was kind of hit and miss, but could have been due to configuration on the server at the time. Anyways, Im throwing this out there to see what might be trending between System admins, and what seems like the best over all solution. What Antivirus are you deploying and why? Id like to stick to solutions that are server managed client setups. Go!
We are currently using ESET. It has a small footprint compared to the others we've tried like SEP and Sophos, and although there is much to be done, their new Enterprise management cloud console is not as horrible or windows-centric as it has been in the past. We allow our users to turn off certain features in a managed client.
I'm actually curious about what others are using too.
We used to use Sophos, have since switched to Cylance. Took some time to get the key with the install to automatically push when a computer was imaged. Once we got it up and working, it has been going well. Windows machines are also running on Cylance. Makes it nice to have the whole company on the same AV.
“Cylance was the first AI built to statically analyze and convict malware pre-execution. We definitely didn’t invent AI, but we were the first to use it this way to deliver pre-execution protection. Many other products have been using machine learning, it’s just that it was used to support legacy methodologies of protection/detection, using ML to identify trends so static signatures could be built, which in a world where attackers are creating individual pieces of malware to avoid signatures, results in a severe lack of efficacy, thats the problem Cylance was built to solve.”
@ericbenfer Having moved from Sophos to Cylance I've certainly noticed the additional items that Cylance catches that neither Sophos nor GateKeeper stop. So far, this has been minor adware (genio type stuff) and 'potential' spyware but it's certainly much more than GateKeeper. I'm happy to compare notes.
