Because Kaspersky was not the low bidder, Technology Supervisor Suzanne Ingram explained that the system had been using the low bidder (AVG), and their experience with AVG had not been good, which has caused her to fear a real danger to the integrity of the network and its devices. Ms. Ingram stated that her department would like to try Kaspersky for one year, and if they are pleased with its performance, they would like to then purchase coverage for a longer period of time.
