Hi all !

Does anyone here know this product ? What are the pros. and cons. ?

I've heard that this product is NOT the same as Norton Antivirus.

Any comments ?

My regards

Same engine, none of the bloat.

We use it at work and it is unobtrusive and seems to work well.  The
only caveat I have experienced is its unpacker cannot open certain
files and the log file gets rather large in detailing the errors.
Unfortunately all settings are disabled for the user and IT Security
won't allow us to make changes.

Yes. I'm beta testing it on my systems for my company. It is quite
different from Symantec's commercial product. It is very efficient, has
high detection rates (based on having up to date signature files) and is
extremely easy to configure. It is extremely light on system resources
and I haven't found any conflicts with other software. It is not,
however, very good at proactive detection.

We're running version 9 on 60+ workstations. Our IT guy loaded 10 on our
sever (Server 2003) and crashed the whole system! He went back to 9.

If you use Lotus Notes and expect Symantec Corporate V10.0 to check
mailboxes, beware.   If it finds a virus it tends to quarantine the
whole mailbox rather than just the email with the virus.   Other than
that I've had no problems with it.

We've chose to disable the Lotus Notes Auto-Protect feature, by default.
