Hi,

I work as a Security Consultant for my company and obviously as an Antivirus specialist.

So this story is about a client who had about 8,000 clients and was currently using MacAfee. They were at the end of their contract,  in few months,so they were looking for a better solution as they were hit by number of outbreaks in the last couple of years and were not satisfied with the support provided.

So a Conference call was scheduled and I was invited to give my views on which antivirus solution to consider migrating,  and why to switch.  We also discuss the Pros and Cons.

Their requirement were pretty simple, but very strict, and they wanted a secure and Malware free environment due to the recent outbreaks which cost them too much with high downtimes and un-availability of critical production servers.

So when I joined the Conference, there were about 8 members with their own views and recommendations.  ...

1 To prevent an automatic sweep of the database until after a backup occurs, increase the Site Properties Log Settings to their maximum permissible value.

2 Perform the backup, as you may feel appropriate.

3 On the computer where the manager is installed, open a Web browser and type the following URL:

https://localhost:8443/servlet/ConsoleServlet?Acti...

After you have performed this task, the log entries for all types of logs are saved in the alternate database table. The original table is kept until the next sweep is initiated.

4 To empty all but the most current entries, perform a second sweep. The original table is cleared and entries then start to be stored there again.

5 Reconfigure the Site Properties Log Settings to the initial preferred values.
