Since the antimalware implementation is strongly recommended, check the following features that your software should have:.
There are multiple server antivirus solutions you can find today — most of them come with subscription options, but you can find free programs as well. Bitdefender GravityZone provides top-notch protection against sophisticated threats without affecting the overall system performance. It comes with comprehensive and easy-to-use functions, which allow it to stand out from most of the next-gen antimalware.
One of the best Windows server antivirus could be Comodo Server Antivirus , which comes with outstanding features that provide protection from data theft, viruses, malware, spyware, phishing, and other common threats.
It provides optimal security to your physical server, prevents and detects the potential malware successfully. You can see that Comodo brings top-class products that provide endpoint protection. When it comes to Comodo Advanced Endpoint Protection , we can say that it truly is an advanced app that provides even more enhanced features that make sure the files on your server keep safe.
Its approach to unknown files is quite excellent since it runs them in a secure, auto-contained environment that ensures security. Bottom line: Your endpoint will get complete protection from unknown files that might cause safety issues. Its innovative and robust options will give you full control over the devices used within your enterprise, and real-time notifications will allow you to react on time.
It includes a pretty straightforward installation, user-friendly interface, and detects and blocks over 4 million attacks every day, including phishing, infected websites, fake shopping carts, and drive-by downloads.
I've decided to go with Avast! Perhaps you could provide an update? Would you do anything differently? The free Microsoft Security Essentials v2 beta was briefly installable on WHS, which gives the hope that it might be released for WHS in the future, if so then I'd say that's the one to go for.
Tanner Collin. Good luck! Have F-Prot sorted out the problems with lagging the server, and only scanning if the admin account is left logged in, as detailed here mswhs. Paul Taylor says:.

I have SEP 11 update 6 installed on all my client machines my work gives us all home-use licenses , but I've been hesitant to install it on my WHSv1 because of the integrated firewall.
I didn't want to lose access to the server after install. I'd hate for a decent AV product to break the remote access features. Yes, the issue is not server as much as the media library accessed remotely. It is in their forums as well. It seems to affect several different ones but only as it relates to that. On the 2k8R2 no problem. I did say this finally: "In the end, do or use whatever works for you. I just gave my opinion on the whole matter. Fair play, I'm not gonna fault that then, but you have to understand that this is the minority, right?
I made that original statement based on my experience and a few close friends. I see now that I am clearly in the minority! Yeah, that is true, many people say that!
I have always used and encouraged others to use a good AV on computers though. Excluding servers! As was our image storage NAS. Cloud does realtime malware scanning and works fine on Windows Home Server It doesn't have an integrated home server Dashboard Plug-In, but can be installed and managed using Remote Desktop. This is a good fit since most other "business" antimalware product suites require multi-client 5 or 10 minimums.
With SEP. Cloud you can buy just 1! I've been reading through this thread and seems like Vipre and Symantec Endpoint are the best options as of right now niether "officially" supported, but both seem to work. What I don't like is Symantec on the other hand, very well known and reputable, however the install file for endpoint is over MB!!! I've been using GData for several months now, but apparently I'm one of the very few who have it up and running successfully.
