I agree with this in general. And as I've said before, it's the OUTBOUND traffic that's just as important to regulate severely. If the guy at the drawbridge lever is an idiot, it doesn't matter how many crocodiles are in the moat.
I keep getting questions like, "I had antivirus software-- why did I get a virus?" Of course, they didn't actually get a virus-- it was "just" malware, but who cares? Even limiting administrator privileges is becoming less effective.

The big issue now a days is not so much AV as it is malware and the general concensus I think is that most of the client server AV products do a terrible job with Malware. And the client server products think they need to add additional stuff like firewalls and so on.
The Trend Firewall (and others that have added firewall components) seems to be the big challenge
Worry Free with the latest service pack provides and option to get rid of that which settles it down alot
That's the reason I'm switching all my clients to a UTM device..kill it before it gets to the server or a workstation. A simple desktop AV solution takes of issues if they bring in a flash drive, etc from the outside.

I've been having lots of trouble with Trend Micro Worry-Free
Business Security, which was the antivirus software consensus choice in this
newsgroup back when it was Clent/Server/Messaging Security. I think that it
may be a dog that had its day. Someone was touting Sophos on the Trend Micro
bulletin board. I'd like to install that on a test server to see if I like
it any better. Which product should I try for SBS and does anyone have any
opinions about it?
