So you've been assigned the task of selecting virus protection for your messaging and groupware server. Or maybe you already have a solution in place, but are having second thoughts because your organization seems to be disrupted by new viruses more than it should be. As someone who deals with anti-virus (AV) all the time, it surprises me that most people (and magazine reviewers as well) evaluate groupware AV products simply by installing on a test server and then counting features. While this does say something about the product's installation process and interface design, it is not an accurate indicator of a product's ability to do what it is intended for - protecting against viruses, worms, Trojans, zombies, malware, and the like. This article is the first of a two-part series that is intended to help readers assess and evaluate AV solutions. This installment will help readers to assess their AV needs and point out a few things to look for in AV products.
