My company has a similar number and has used Avast since the start (2 years) with no problems.

I've no experience of Trend Micro.

I run Kaspersky myself. I've no reason to doubt the efficacy of the software, but my experience of their technical support has been extremely disappointing.

I should add that I'm a private individual, not a business.

Like all anti-virus and security protection, the reliability depends on the updates, whether manual or automatic.

A Google review search should provide most answers and ratings depending on which website is selected, they will differ slightly on reviewer methods and criteria.

I have used Avast and AVG, and 'tested' one or two others, but Avast covers all my needs, and as done for a long time.

Possibly Trend and Kaspersky was at one time classed as the 'professional business' products, but I now notice that PC World are selling Kaspersky as a recommendation!.

I had Kaspersky & it let in malware that needed a complete format of the hard drive & re-installation of all software. The activication code failed and five - yes FIVE - requests for help have gone unanswered. I've wasted the purchase price & have now gone to PC Tools

Sounds as though we've had similar "support" problems.

Eset provide NOD32 on company rates - and specialised versions for Exchange servers and Lan servers.

As an AV NOD32 is unmatched for thoroughness small overheads and speed - particularly good if you have older, less capable systems in the network.
