Why McAfee?

Hey all,

Let me start by saying that this isn't a "McAfee bashing" thread. I'm just curious how others have chosen to use this product over other vendors, especially in the area of anti-virus.

My company has been a McAfee shop for the last 12 years, and there haven't been any major issues, other than certain strains of malware getting through (that's another topic). I guess my question is, for those of you who have used other vendors, whether Symantec, Sophos, Kaspersky, etc., why did you choose to go with McAfee? My management team has suggested we start looking at other vendors next year, just to see what else is out there, so I'm curious about real world experiences from people who have used these other vendors at one time, then made the switch to McAfee.

Best Regards,
