I recently inherited the duties of IT management for my small office (about 10 computers) and I would like to get rid of the ancient (year 2000!) antivirus software we have. I'm not sure if this is the correct forum for this, but since it's NOD32 that I would like to use, I thought I would ask it here. I need to convince the higher-ups that we need new antivirus software, but they are not technical people and use arguments like "we already have antivirus software, why would we need to buy more?". From their point of view that is a good argument, and to be honest I'm not well versed enough in antivirus software to be able to give them a good answer. Our existing software even still receives virus definition updates via the company (Symantec). I understand that newer antivirus engines are simply able to detect more viruses, and more types of viruses, but that itsn't very quantitative (they want numbers!). I've googled a bit for antivirus engines, but only ever found either extremely technical or extremely biased results. Does anyone out there know of any resources that give a good explanation of the consequences of using an out of date anti-virus engine? NOD32 runs on my system at home, so I don't need any justification personally, but I need some 3rd party documentation to help convince my higher-ups that it's worth spending money on when we "already have antivirus software". Thanks for any insight you guys might provide!
