I like McAfee's Total Virus Defense Suite. It comes with NetShield for the servers, GroupShield for the Exchange DS, and VirusScan for 9.x and NT. It also has a Administrative console for Virus updates and such. You'll get a lot of personal favorites from different posts, evaluate the ones you find the most appealing...I have used McAfee's for 5 years in three different companies, and have never had a show-stopping issue, even when the Melissa's and other viruses were floating around.

I'm sure you'll get as many different ideas as you get respondents to this question.

I've used Mcafee, Thunderbyte, Norton and a few others over the last 10 or so years. I've been using products from Trend Micro for the last couple of years and they've worked very well, without taking too much overhead or compromising my systems. They offer products for Proxy, Exchange, Servers and Workstations of all sorts. PCcillin is great on desktops and Interscan Viruswall protects your gateway.

I like InoculatIT. It updates the new virus signatures to NT workstation without relying on the login script. http://www.cai.com/products/inoculateit/inoculateit_prodinfo.htm

We use InoculateIT by Computer Associates and we're happy with it. It has a great autodownlaod feature that can be set up to automatically retrieve virus signature updates from CA's web site on a scheduled basis. CA is pretty good at maintaining up-to-date signatures for both 9x and NT. We use a login script to install the client agent and maintain signature updates on the desktops. I recommend that you DO NOT set up any antivirus software to scan any Exchange database files. I know from experience that it can crash Exchange or cause major corruption (Check Knowledge Base article Q245822). Viruses sitting in Exchange databases can cause no damage unless the are executed. This is usually when clients open mail at their desktops. You are better off having desktop AV protect against email viruses.

After a while using McAfee and others, I got the conclusion that the Norton Antivirus is the best. The server version has a wonderfull control over the server users.
