joe5570 Posted February 27, 2013 Report Share Posted February 27, 2013 I was hoping to get some community feedback regarding the use of Immunet 3.0 in a web hosting environment. We are currently using McAfee, which I understand can be used side-by-side, but we would rather replace it outright. Does anyone have any reason to think that it would not be ideal in this type of environment? First, is anyone currently doing this on multiple web servers (Windows), MS SQL / MySQL servers and mail servers (we already use ClamAV on the mail servers)? Does anyone have silent deployment script options, scheduled task creation, and startup/shutdown scripts ect to help automate things? We really love that Immunet 3.0 has on-access scanning but I am curious to know how it will interpret our user's code and if it will affect performance. Currently our McAfee solution does scan web page files with little or no noticeable performance issues. Would this be the same with Immunet? Is it worth scanning user's files (on-access) in addition to a daily scan? Will we get a bunch of false-positives with customer scripts that look hackerish? Our McAfee product has an Access Protection option. We typically have to use the "minimal" settings as to not affect customer software installations (dedicated servers) so the feature is often moot for us. However, we use it extensively to create custom rules to block access to specific hacker files and executables we have seen. Is there a *simple* way, Immunet or ClamAV, to block access or flag certain files from being accessed / running? Licensing for Plus seems to be a necessary option for me for the extra scanning and detection. This seems like a good deal because it's about half of cost (yearly) of re-licesing McAffee. Does anyone have an opinions about this? I was slightly put off that there doesn't appear to be any sales support for the licensed version. It's not a big deal necessarily since I don't really talk to McAfee either but from a sales perspective it's nice. Lastly, if Immunet shouldn't be used in this envirnment, any recommended alternatives? Thanks in advance for your help! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
