 I deployed McAfee for our 200 user network (note, not 200k).  The learning curve is really high but once you set it you can forget it.. at least I do until something goes wrong.

Interesting thread for me. I'm looking to move away from Symantec Endpoint Protection. It's burned me so many times with insane behavior. If something goes wrong on a server, the network or a client, that's the first thing I blame and I'm almost always correct. Does anyone use a whole suite of the same line of products, for email server, clients, etc. or is there a mix and match approach?

Take a look at MSE for business aka Microsoft Forefront - free eval as well.  It is basically the same thing as MSE - I'd imagine Microsoft's control/admin system is pretty steller and MSE just works great, clean, small and not annoying.

It does a good job on the spyware end as well.  If you are not running MSE on your own PC, meh, I would.

 Also -you might be able to talk about IDS/IPS in this discussion so you can pick up some new skills or just throw a snort box in there and span the incoming gateway port ;)

Currently using Trend Micro Enterprise.

About 3000 stations and servers, do not have a single bad thing to say about it. To boot, the support has been great.

You can lock down usb ports, network shares etc.. as another feature of the program which is awesome. No more USB thumb drives in our sites... it's great but it still allows usb keyboards/mice to work.

Curious as to the last time anyone had a system hit by a virus and not spyware. I only have to clean up the spyware and haven't seen a virus in forever. But it seem spyware scanners are the ignored middle child in most of these discussions.

Spyware stuff generally happens from unprotected web browsing. But I do see trojans (of the RAT type) on a fairly regular basis in corp networks. Usually comes in via e-mail and then phones home to the control box. Jump off from there.

That's why endpoint stuff is so important along with network based IPS and good outbound filtering policy.
