Need opinions on Network Security software

    I run a network at an upstate Hospice. We are currently using Sophos End
    Point Security as our AV/firewall/etc. security software. I recently
    upgrade it to Enterprise Console 4. I'm not thrilled with their handling
    of the firewall management from the console. Overall, I'm happy with
    the program, though.

    We are due for renewing the support contract in November, so I want to
    start looking at alternatives to evaluate. Obvious candidates are
    Symantec, McAfee, Trend Micro.

    I'd appreciate feedback on these and any others folks may use. I want to
    be able to manage the entire thing from a single console. Firewall
    configuration should not be available to the end user. I want to be able
    to push out updates and end point scans. An important issue is the size
    of updates. Many of my mobile users don't stay connected long (sometimes
    as little as 5-10 minutes). Also, impact of a scan on system performance
    needs to be minimal.

    Thanks in advance....
