About relying on security software: don't.
Other measures are by far more effective:
-patch management for apps and windows
-restricted acounts
-blocked startup areas
-teach users what (not) to do
-maybe internet only via a hardened terminal server
-maybe a software restriction policy

If you like virus scanners more than anything of the above, lookout for a product that can be configured what to scan and configure it. But you cannot rely on it.
If you are looking for product suggestions, you should describe what you are trying to potect against what attack. I think looking for a product comparable to Sym. endpoint is not very descriptive.

Please check Eset NOD32 Business  edition.Its very light weight and easy to manage.Can install the client from the server using push install technique.You will get immediate notification on the server console about threats.Update is done centrally.Satisfactory.main thing i liked about is the resouce it takes.Very very light on pc's.
