  • 1.  vSRX - Antivirus - Sophos vs Avira ?

    Hey,

    has anyone deployed / used the built in UTM features of Antivirus?

    I would like to get both IDP and AV with the CS bundle that includes antispam, content filtering, etc as well but that's outside of our budget (4 seperate instances of SRX)

    It looks like Avira is easier to configure, but it could be drastically underperforming compared to Sophos.

    Hello,

    The general guidance is to use Sophos unless the SRX you are deploying is not able to communicate with the Internet. 

    Configuration should be nearly identical between the two.

    HTH,
