Our scenario for AV-Comparatives’ 2013 Business Software Review is a single-site company network with a domain controller/file server running Windows Server 2012, and 25 client PCs, running a mix of Windows 8, Windows 7 and Windows XP. A company of this size may well not have a full-time IT manager, so we have considered the management and monitoring of the security software from the point of view of someone who is not highly trained or experienced in IT administration, and only looks after the system part-time. We do however assume that the initial installation/deployment of the software will be carried out by an IT professional who is familiar with small business networks.
