    Symantec Corporate Edition works well for this, the only problem is that the client app is resource intensive and can have a performance effect on slower and older machines.  AVG corporate edition from also works well.  Both these products can have the server force AV updates to the clients.

    Symantec is usually thought of as bloatware in the anti-virus world.  Therefore the performance decrease will not just be on older computers-your better off with AVG corporate or avast server.

    An ideal solution for this is Sophos SAV which seems to work well.  Have a look at:

    I'm using Bit Defender to protect all my network ... and my 2 files servers. Really good price and this AV have a huristic scan so I think it's the best solution.

    If you come from Canada, SecureIP Solutions provide license :) and I think they are the only provider in Canada

    You would need to run a proxy server on your server and have the clients connect through it...most of the antivirus solutions suggested here will scan files and websites as they pass through the proxy server
