We just purchased an Xserve G-5 and are awaiting delivery . After checking into antivirus software I have found out there is no antivirus software available yet!!! Does anyone know of an Antivirus software that will work for the Xserve G5? I have several sources checking into it, including Apple but no word yet. All our computers on the network are virus protected, but the very idea of an unprotected server scares me. What can we do?
QUOTE Thanks

There really are not any viruses for the Mac platform.. so you really do not need any. I have found that AV software actually hurts the computer more then it helps it.. I wouldnt worry about it And I know if you are normally a PC user that scares you.. quite badly, but seriously.. it's a mac and you don't need it

CheerS!
