MSE: Excellent Free AntiVirus for Small Businesses

Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE)A while back, Microsoft released an excellent antivirus product onto the market known as Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE).

It’s 100% free and one of the higher ranked AV products on the market.

Originally, the EULA (end-user license agreement) for MSE said that you could only run it on your personal machine, so small businesses (10 PCs or less) were still left with buying AV software for their machines.

Well, this month Microsoft gave a present to all those 10 PC or less businesses by amending their EULA to allow installation of MSE for small businesses with up to 10 PCs.

Most of us here use MSE at home as our personal AV software of choice (it’s free and works brilliantly, how do you pass that up?) now you can use it at your small business, and either pocket the money you were spending on anti-virus licenses, or put that money towards growing your business, as opposed to paying yet another yearly fee.

Are you going to try MSE on your office machines?
