We use Network Associates' Total Virus Defense. Have been using it for 5 years now and it's great. Reason I chose it? It is (or was) used by 80% of Fortune 100 companies. Also widely used by many big academic institutions worldwide.

Trend is alsoexcellent.

For some objective comparisons, try the following (unfortunately I can't provide the URL's, but it should be easy enough to find with a search engine):

TruSecure: "Since 1989, TruSecure Corporation sets the standard for risk mitigation in increasingly complex and interconnected business environments. A global leader in managed security services, TruSecure helps organizations ensure the security of critical business information assets.

"TruSecure continuously protects more than 700 customer sites in over 30 countries around the world."

Virus Test Center, University of Hamburg, Computer Science Department (Excellent)

West Coast Lab's Checkmark: "(A) system which tests and certifies computer security products.
The Checkmark has been developed as an independent testing and standards organisation delivering a high degree of confidence that those products and services which contain the Checkmark can be relied upon to an identified standard.

"West Coast Labs test products at regular intervals against the individual testing criteria. This testing procedure ensures that a product carrying the Checkmark has achieved that security standard at the time it was tested."

AV-Test.org: "... is a project of the Business-Information-Workgroup at the Institute of Technical and Business Information Systems at the Otto-von-Guericke University Magdeburg (Germany) in cooperation with GEGA IT-Solutions GbR. We consistently test anti-virus software on behalf of companies and leading IT publications."

Hope that helps :)
