....if I manage a lan,for example, of 100 Pc, at first I have to buy 100 linceses of a corporate AV solution ($2500-$3000 per year), then I use KMS and KWF and I have to buy these licenses. OK it's all right !! But it's possible I have to buy another 100 AV licenses for mail server and another 100 AV licenses for firewall ?????
I've calculate, the medium cost of a AV solution for 100 mailboxes is near $800-900, It's crazy. Someone know a cheaper solution, awaiting ClamAV or ClamWin support?

if really depends on how you run your LAN.

Here is what I think is best balance between cost and AV.

Get AV for all desktops with network editions so that you can manage them from your PC. This is essentially the last line of defence on user's PC but it does get most of the virus.

Get free AV for your email server. For eg, ClamAV essentially free for linux. There are already ported version of it on Windows if I am not mistaken. You can find the link at ClamAV site if they exist.

Get free AV for your firewall. Firewalls are best run on linux. Windows based firewall is waste of money and time to run and maintain.

Not a perfect solution but solve a lot of money issues.

I would recommend CA eTrust for the FW and Mailserver because the way CA licenses is awesome!! Bascially it is NOT per user but per device so say you have 1 mail server with 1000 users, that is 1 license and the same goes for the FW. I have used CA for about 3 years and have been VERY happy and when you call support someone actually answers the phone, amazing!!

Let me make one clarification, now this is true IF you already have the users in your network licensed on CA eTrust.

If you have virsu-scanning on KWF you don't need it on KMS if you ensure mail passes through KWF enroute to/from KMS. KWF can then handle the virusscanning of mail messages.

That's how I run it here (KMS and KWF are on the same machine).

Good solution !!! Thanks, I've already installed a trial version and all is good!! The licensing too !! It's possible to buy only 1 pc license to install on KMS and KWF for xxxxxx.....users!!
