Hi,
My choice is Sophos AV.
It is designed for business use.
Monthly CD (or Web) update, new virus id?s as they are discovered (roughly 20+ per month)
Control over all workstations (updating etc) from one point.
Automatic updating is available if required
Emergency notification system for urgent virus id?s
There are plenty of other reasons depending on your OS and environment.
You can check out all features and download a trial version at:
www.sophos.com

Regards,
Peter Johnstone

You may or may not have been involved in this Q&A forum in the past, but it is considered rude and ungrateful to reject answers that were helpful.
Those first two answers did answer your question, and should have been accepted.

I can only assume that you did not want to close the question, and you thought that the only way to do that was to reject the answers. However, you could have left your comments as a comment to your question, left the answers unrated, and the question would have stayed open for more answers.
You don't have to reject perfectly good answers. In fact, I would guess that people will be inclined to take a pass on sharing their opinion since you will "apparently" reject it anyway.

Take it for what it's worth.

That was exactly the reason why I rejected the anwsers. I wanted to keep the thread open for discussion. Since I assumed It would be rude to reject good anwsers, I commented on every reject: saying that it was indeed helpfull but that I wanted more comments.

I tought everyone could read the comments and I thought I had to rate every anwser...

We use the Norton Enterprise edition. It has the ability to update all clients from a single server. That way you only do one internal update instead of depending on hundreds of users eating up your Internet bandwidth doing updates. It has a component for MS Exchange servers. There is also a component for an e-mail gateway which has the ability to block e-mail based on subject, as well as filter based on extension of files such that .vbs files don't enter your network.

The most importantthing about your anti-virus software is that you have it. The next most important thing is keeping it up to date.

Unimportant whether you accept or not, I just want to help.

We have been very satisfied with Network Associates (McAfee) Active Virus Defense. This includes:
1.) WebShield, which deletes quarantines or cleans on the average four viruses per day. (Quite a few for only a 50 user network)
2.) EPolicy Orchestrator which automatically configures and pushes updates to the desktop and allows us to schedule scans on the desktop in the hidden mode during lunch.
3.) NetShield for Windows and NetWare, of which we have several of each.
We haven't had an infected workstation or server since we started almost two years ago. At that time we were spending all our time formatting and re-installing Windows on workstations.

The virus updates havebeen very timely from McAfee and usually ahead of the onslaught.
