SBS 2011 Standard Anti-Virus RRS feed

  • Question

  • I saw some earlier posts on this topic, but they are a few years old, so I thought I'd ask to see if there is anything new.  I have SBS 2011 Standard with 7 client computers.  The server sits behind a firewall appliance (old Sonic Wall SOHO), and is not used for browsing or as a workstation.   The client computers all have Microsoft Essentials AV.    1) under this configuration, how important is AV for the server itself?  In other words, does it provide meaningful benefit v. any system issues it might create?

    2) What third party AV software would you recommend for just basic AV on the server?  It appears a number of providers, Symantec, Trend Micro, and Kaspersky, all have a product that works with SBS 2011 Standard.

    Any comments would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks.
