Looking to replace MacFee with SASW

Recommended Posts

I currently use Mcafee with my sonicwall nsa2400, but am not too impressed with Mcafee's performance and troubles that i have installing it on new PCs and also its ability to prevent infection... for the last year now each time a PC gets infected i end up installing SASW and it cleans the machine every time without fail, so far.... so now my Mcafee is up for renewal, 50 licenses, so i wan wondering if i should switch to SASW in a corporate environment. Has or does anyone use SASW in a corporate environment? If so are there any drawbacks?

I just a side note, SAS is not an anitvirus. It is meant to run alongside your AV. If you replace Mcafee, I would replace it with possibly Avira: http://www.avira.com/en/pages/index.php or ESET NOD32: http://www.eset.com/

A few other options would be Avast!: http://www.avast.com/ or Kasperskey: http://www.kaspersky.com/

Any of these will run great with SAS :mrgreen:

Hi Rob.

I'm a computer tech that has owned a computer repair shop for over 13 years. I specialize in laptop repair and malware removal/prevention. Over the last three years, I've installed SAS Pro on hundreds of computers both residential and commercial. My initial advice is to ditch Mcafee.

With that being said, I'm going to stick my neck out and say that my commercial customers only run SAS Pro.

Keep in mind that the commercial environment (in general) is far less prone to infections in relation to the residential environment. The latter is subject to infections via P2P, Torrents, Face book, etc, in which the former is virtually not.

Around two years ago, I got a call from the administrator of a seniors center who is in charge of the computer "stuff". She was aware of my services as I had previously worked on her nieces infected computer. To make a long story short, she ditched Norton, tried Mcafee, and was very pissed off at both for numerous reasons. I got rid of the crap and installed SAS Pro on all of the machines. It's been smooth sailing for them ever since.

I have many such examples. and much more to speak of in this regard.

My final suggestion is to Contact Nick to become a reseller, and/or PM me for more inclusive information.
