IMO, Sav Corp+WF.
TM IS 2007 is extremely heavy on RAM, and the antivirus part lags behind that of SAV Corp. Although the firewall's pretty good.
TM IS 2007 can also be terminated, whereas SAV has tamper protection to prevent it from being shutdown.
another vote for Sav Corp+WF. its a light and effective combo.
what is wf short for?
my guess is Windows Firewall.
ok thanks my vote goes to sav corp as well strangely
i dont know why the choose would be those two but i answered the queston anyways.
To Iodore: Because I have these AVs currently
fair enough i thought it was something like they where available to you.
Well tmis will keep you a lot safer online but is resource hoggy so expect some slow down. SAV + WF would be a good, light combo. Personally i'd use SAV combined with a good firewall such as comodo or zonealarm.
TMIS 2007 offers a more complete security. I'm not talking about the strength but the coverage. SAV is a corporate product not aimed for home users. But it is quite light. Strangely TMIS 2007 behaved properly on my system (PIII with 256MB SDRAM) with no slowdown or hogging.
If your main concern is virus protection go with SAV, trends detection rate is well below SAV'S, however I understand that they do have a really good firewall.
Yeah if you want all the bells & whistles that come with trend micro then its a great choice.
I use and really like SAV corp. I would recommend it over Trend IS anytime. It has better detection and runs much lighter.
To bigc73542: which firewall would you recommend?
ZAP has conflicts with SAV on my pc
At this time I am useing NPF as it is effective and runs surprisingly light. I also like kerio 2.1.5 and comodo. it really just depends which one you personally like. Out of the ones I mentioned neither of them has ever let me down. But I also run a router/firewall. but for just outright protection I do prefer norton personal firewall. This is a personal opinion and others might not like NPF. and it is a bit pricy.
So it will be better to switch to Sym. Client Security? I have it.
Is not it more heavy than SAV+NPF or SAV+other firewall?
Sophos Endpoint security is highly recommended for corporate use.
Consists of SAV and Outpost engine client firewall.
this is what I am running alondside NPF.
