VSE 8.5i and 8.7i Comparison Document

HI All,

I'm not sure if this is the correct section to post this but here goes.

I'm looking for a virusscan enterprise 8.5i and 8.7i comparison document. I recall seeing it once upon a time but have since lost it.

If anyone has a link for me that would be muchos appreciated.

I know there is such an article for 8.0i / 8.5i but have been unable to find one for the next version up. Will look again.


Re: VSE 8.5i and 8.7i Comparison Document

I'm working on one

For now, please use the readme of VSE 8.7i, features section. It would explain what has been added to VSE 8.7i. Note that some additional features, such as URL whitelisting for ScriptScan has been added with Patch 1.

thanks for the replies...

I'm actually looking for some performance comparison graphs looking at On-Access and On-Demand scanners.

It will also be great to see a comparison of time it takes for services to load during startup.

Re: VSE 8.5i and 8.7i Comparison Document

There is definitely an immprovement on ODS scan time in VSE 8.7i (latest patch) vs VSE 8.5i. An slight improvement went to VSE 8.7i OAS, but you will need to disable "Process on enable" as after Patch 2 it's rated Maximum security rather than standard (you get the option during the local install).

Unfortunatly, it's not possible to quantify this data as it depends on a large number of factors starting from hardware and ending by what 3rd party software are installed.
