In my personal opinion I like AVG by Grisoft. I've used it on several server installations and it's worked quite well. If your running a domain then you can use the remote admin tool to install the program to client computers from the server itself, as well as monitor and run scans from the server. You can try a free version of AVG @ http://free.grisoft.com Pricing for the antivirus program is per license but I can tell you it is well worth the money. I believe its cheaper then symantecs norton as well.

Hi Manesh -

As per MalleusMaleficarum's comment - further info is really required any of the majot AV vendors products will likely fit your needs - Symantec, Macafee, trend etc - do you already use ant AV products - it will likely be easiest to deploy the same software to all your servers if you are already using any AV solution.

cheers

I would like to also recommend AVG.... I wish my work would have gotten it instead of this damned Symantec Corporate crap!
AVG has picked up things missed by Symantecs latest definitions, and is cheaper.

AVG also does the auto update more reliably than symantec in my experience.

Uberpoop, I agree entirely I'm sorry I forgot to mention about the update process for AVG. It tends to update without a hitch. Another benefit of AVG is that its not as resource intense. So your server will have more processing power to actually "server" your clients.

I think any of the top six A/V products should suffice.

I recommend you select the one that you find the easiest to understand and use. If you do not understand how to set up features and functions of product, then those do you no good, no matter how well the product is.

Both AVG and nod32 are good suggestions.  I personally would add Panda Software's BusinesSecure Exchange 2006 with TruPrevent™ Technologies to the list as well.  I am currently running it on a Dell server running Windows SBS 2K3.

I think your Antivirus depends on what you plan on using the server for...as well as what OS will be running on it.  I know the Panda solution will run on Windows and Linux systems.

Here is a link with much more information:

You can also download a free demo.  Their pricing was very competitive which eventually led me to go with their product.

Best of luck with you decision!
