    Currently I run Comodo Itarian but I don't see how to get it to work with phones/tablets under the same licensing.

    I have tested Symantec, Eset, Sophos, and maybe some more.
    The license I get is a small business license, due to a couple of Windows Servers. Got three workstations, 3 laptops, 3 iPhones, 3 Androids and a couple of tablets. Willing to pay up to 150-175€ per year. Have a total of about 15 devices.

    With Eset I used Endpoint Protection, but the management tool would not allow enrolment of Mobile Devices under the same license. Also, expensive in my opinion.

    Then I went for Symantec, also endpoint, but I was never able to get it working with version 15 after having a trial with version 14. All kinds of issue, spent three months on and off in support cases. Useless. Despite being what I wanted in theory and at a reasonable price.

    Talked to Sophos, "ops, you have server, you need this business package for a lot more money".

    I have an office but I am not a business. I have several computers and devices because we use them and we need them. I use Win Server for backup and some hosted webs.

    Advice?

    Note 1. I will not contact my local dealer of any brand, that is always more expensive.
    Note 2. Yes, I set a price limit, don't start with the thing about losing data due to being cheap, I haven't lost a Kb in 15 years. Having said that I have been a customer at Eset for most of that time, but now it's too expensive.

    USA still the best. But getting worse!
    Idk if this would work. But maybe check out Bitdefender Endpoint Security. Which I know nothing about.

    Only reason I suggest it is I have Bitdefender Total Security [consumer not business product] for windows which also includes android OSs.

    Hum, yeah, I have looked at Bitdefender some time ago and it could be a candidate.

    The home solutions are ok priced but no server support, while business (for server support) is on the expensive side ranging up to 400€ and above.

    One thing that bugs me a bit is the forest of different solutions you face.. How does anyone know what to pick? I started off with small business selection and ended up with Gravityzone.

    Specs for Home: https://download.bitdefender.com/resources/media/materials/2020/userguides/en_EN/bitdefender_premium_security_2020_userguide_en.pdf
    Specs for Small Business: https://download.bitdefender.com/SMB/Cloud/GravityZone/en_US/Bitdefender_GravityZone_InstallationGuide_1_enUS.pdf

    Then again. Thinking out loud here.... All my Windows machines are more or less used for gaming, I am thinking a Home product would be less restrictive and more adaptive in regards to how the computer is used than a Business product that do not necessarily handle a PC with those communication and software requirements. Home product may be prepped to accept Steam, random files, and gaming processes with online communication. Kaspersky has a decent pricing for its Cloud Product: https://www.kaspersky.co.uk/security-cloud

    EDIT I see now that Bitdefender has similar offers: https://www.bitdefender.com/solutions/family-pack.html

    That would answer your/mine question about winsrv @Esse , and this https://www.secureage.com/products/secureaplus/

    This answers the Android+iOS devices question. https://www.secureaplus.com/windows/#specifications

    But, I could definitely consider it for my servers. Kaspersky or Bitdefender for regular devices and SecureAPlus for Server. Always a bit messy with two interfaces but it would seem I have to go down that road regardless.

    Give SAP a try on your Windows client, I think you will be surprised in a good way once you get to know it.

    The problem here is the server. I know there are multiple products that have a license good for multiple devices such as Kaspersky and Norton that will allow Windows/Android/iOS. Then you get to the server part. There probably aren't many products that will install on a server that don't cost a lot. You may be able to install in comparability mode and lie about the Windows version but I wouldn't use that as an actual solution.
