We're rolling out a new Remote Desktop Services server and have decided that it's probably time to install antivirus software on it; while we wait for our vendor/supplier to tell us about the licensing options, can anyone explain how various AV software works (in terms of processes/services) in a multi-user Remote Desktop server environment? Do they use:
- background service with no per-user component?
- per-user component only?
- something else?
This question suggested that ESET had a background service and Symantec would load one instance per user; what do various other AV programs do on remote desktop servers? Specifically I'm looking at Symantec Endpoint Protection, Trend Micro and Microsoft Forefront.
