No one understands this more than Paul Slager, Network Administrator for Midwest Palliative and Hospice Care Center.
Hospice is a nonprofit organization that specializes in healthcare helping support and takes care of terminally ill patients, as well as keeping them and their families as comfortable and relaxed as possible. Slager must constantly deal with security issues pertaining to the confidential records of patients. He must think about things like; keeping security tight, as well as allowing the people who need to access information inside the system to do so in a safe and time-efficient manner. This requires a perfect balance between security and accessibility. The same applies to life-saving devices. This is why he decided to switch the company from using Symantec to AVG. Symantec was taking up a lot of space on the computer systems and didn't have very efficient management tools for his specific needs. AVG Anti-Virus was one of the main software options Slager had heard about, and he was very quick to check the management options as well as security. He wanted to be sure that each individual computer would be protected thoroughly within the network. What stood out most for Slager about AVG was the fact that the system updated things so efficiently and often, that there wasn't much he had to do in order to keep the network up to date.

CLAREMONT, NC -JUNE 19th, 2008-Paul Slager is Network Administrator for the Midwest Palliative and Hospice CareCenter, a nonprofit healthcare organization focusing on hospice and palliative care located in Glenview, Illinois.
Slager has managed the organization's 500 workstations and 30-plus Microsoft servers since early 2006. As a healthcare organization, patient record confidentiality is essential to remain in compliance with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, or HIPAA, so network security is a top priority for Slager. "A key factor for me is that there is no tradeoff of usability for security," Slager said. "I have to make sure that our users have access to all their applications and devices in a secure manner without the security getting in the way of their productivity. And of course I also have to make sure we keep out viruses and maintain perimeter security." When Slager arrived on the scene, the hospice care center was using Symantec as its primary security solution. However, he quickly became frustrated with the load the system was placing on users' workstations and the relatively weak management functions. "The main factors in our decision to seek an alternative solution were the shortcomings of the management functions," Slager said. "We also couldn't help noticing that Symantec was taking up a lot of processing power on each user's computer." So, high on Slager's wishlist were ease of management, small footprint on client systems, and of course a good track record in keeping sensitive files secure and malware out. AVG Anti-Virus: The Right Solution "I'd heard from several sources that AVG Anti-Virus software was a solution worth looking at, and so it was one of the first alternative solutions I tested to see if it would fit our needs," Slager said. Slager said that, as with any new solution, there were a few teething problems, so he called the support team at Walling Data for advice. "There were a few aspects of the software that I wasn't quite sure how to configure," Slager remembered. "AVG has been great, and very easy to manage," Slager said. "I would definitely recommend it, and Walling Data to others"
