hrm, kinda weak to me... we have 9,000 users and over 6,000 workstations
running NT... write yourself a perl script (or VB if that's your preference)
that does the updates on the local machines for the workstation AV software,
install it as a service with some logging and you're done other than
monitoring it from time to time.... then make sure you (as the Exchange
Admin) are monitoring what you should be blocking and that your Exchange AV
software is updating properly....

At 1300 machines given the problems we appear to be having, the guy that
does our AV wants a FTE created for it because he feels it would be
appropriate.

How big is your company?

Is 10,000 users enough for it to be a full time job?  100,000 users?

It varies from org to org.

I don't think this is a full time job.   If you have a full time
position just for A/V, you'd have to have a backup person since viruses
do not take any vacation.   Instead of having full time position, pay
A/V vendor to notify you (& other support staffs) when there's new virus via
pager, cell phone, email, etc.  If you want to have closer relationship with
A/V vendor, pay more money to have someone like Technical Account Manager,
TAM.  Once you have those communcation method established, you have to have
software that can distribute updates automatically and fast.

My two cents...

Just curious what some of the Exchange Admins think.  Would you consider
Antivirus a full time job?  I speak for both email and network/desktop.


Around here it isn't, although we wish it was cause it seems to be getting
neglected.  We are around 1300 users right now.
