Comodo Antivirus

Comodo Antivirus seems to be very cost-effective and capable, but if someone was particular about certain things, I think they could be disappointed. You could pay a lot more for a bigger brand and get a little better customization options. It works for us who don't have any internal custom apps anymore. When we did, one that used command-line functions that called other programs and resources on the network, everything about it was rightly being flagged. Since we got away from having a program that could resemble one a hacker uses, we have had very limited issues. We had to just turn containment off because it was too much of a hassle to figure out how to get all of the different parts white-listed.

Cons

Comodo Antivirus

  • Whitelisting could be more customizable.
  • We were getting a lot of false positives for Windows updates and other widely used applications, but, then, they seemed to fix that problem.

McAfee Total Protection

  • Updates while always current and valuable occur very often and need to be administered constantly if your systems administrators do not schedule them on a regular basis.
  • Depending on your system it can be a resource burden when running in the background.
  • Interface can be difficult to navigate at times for non-experienced users.

Comodo Antivirus 9.0
Based on 1 answer
I have interacted with them several times, and I'm not giving them a 10 because they never blew my mind how good they were, but they certainly met my high expectations and helped us resolve all issues we had. We paid for support to help us set it up, and I think that was a good choice. There's a very steep learning curve at first with the initial configuration. We feel confident in being able to change everything now that we have been using it, but initially it was all a very new thing to us since we never had used a centrally managed Antivirus and Firewall program before.

Alternatives Considered

Comodo Antivirus

Especially considering the containment feature it had, we felt it was very well worth the price. All of the features are very hard to compare, and you have to eventually take a leap of faith. We were fine with where that took us with this program choice. Support has always been pretty good and friendly.

McAfee ultimately gives you the most bang for your buck so to speak, enabling you to have essential protection at a reasonable cost.

Return on Investment

Comodo Antivirus

  • Overall a very positive impact. We like how it can be told to remove itself the next time a computer comes online. Web root never worked well at doing that.
  • It was cheaper than alternatives, and we were really impressed with how safe computers can be with containment as long as it doesn't slow you down if you use custom-built apps.

McAfee Total Protection

  • McAfee briefings have alerted us to threats BEFORE they happen allowing us to shore up networks and security.
  • Frequent updates keep our system protected and provide valuable usage and system data that lets us determine the overall efficiency of our network and systems in one suite of products.
  • McAfee's constant 24/7 protection has saved money by assuring our systems are protected and therefore have saved us time by avoiding costly reconstiution of compromised systems.
