Which Business Security Solution is common seen / used in your country? [malware event]

[ Edited ]

Hi all

 

I believe some of the technical people would be curious and try to find out what security solutions is used for government, education, place of interest or organizations. I am one of it. :smileyhappy: * I did not use any of their machines, I saw it through Taskbar. :smileywink:

 

I am not biased for any security products, this is based on what I seen outside. :smileyvery-happy: Commonly either Symantec or McAfee in Singapore for business security. 


Government managed hospital -  Symantec Antivirus Corporate Edition

IBM Singapore - Symantec AntiVirus Corporate Edition

Institute of Technical Education Singapore - Symantec Endpoint Protection

Singapore Polytechnics (including Student's Personal Laptop if direct purchase) - Symantec Endpoint Protection

Primary and Secondary Schools (under Ministry of Education) - McAfee VirusScan Enterprise

SCDF - McAfee VirusScan Enterprise

 

I also seen some Microsoft and ESET security products running around SMB when I was asked to go to client sites to assist setup for presentation. So far, I have not seen any other products from other security vendors.

 

It would be great if you can share your findings, so all of us would know which security vendors is more popular for different areas, etc. 

 

Cheers :smileyvery-happy:

Peter,

 

That is an interesting observation and Aryeh has shared a quite a lengthy list.  

 

I had no idea there were so many companies or products in the market.   It would probably be a complex task to define a matrix of features / functions and assess this list of products against it, and then in turn to analyze the needs of different industries against the matrix of features,  and try to determine best fit.

 

While the risk is probably low, we may want to avoid noting individual companies that are using specific products.

 

If others have interest in this line of discussion, perhaps a way forward might be to ask our experts what kinds of needs / features they most often see from various clients and whether the needs from one market segement to another are really all that different?

 

Mark

Re: Which Business Security Solution is common seen / used in your country?

That's a pretty good list of antivirus solutions but by no means, comprehensive. There's 45 there by my count but don't convict me of fabricating evidence...it's late and I've already taken off my shoes so anything I counted over 20 is going to be suspect. I found a listing online Here, from the Wikipedia. Nice list there...and I counted 73 (remember, more than 20 is up to you to verify).

Of those, there are just 13 that I haven't seen in my ventures around the various "help" forums.

Neither of the two lists though have mentioned Prevx or UnThreat unless my feeble brain missed them buried under some other name, and I've seen both of those around the web forums too.

Re: Which Business Security Solution is common seen / used in your country?

Hello,

 

Prevx was acquired by Webroot.  I believe it is still available as a standalone product.

 

I don't recall hearing of UnThreat before.  Off to learn more about them.  Thanks!

 

Regards,
