We are looking to augment our standard antivirus solution on our Windows 2003 servers.

The product below looks interesting, and claims to support Windows 2003 Server.
Is anyone using it in a production environment?

Thanks.

 For system administrators, security experts, and experienced commandline users. Check your system for malware infection with the Commandline Scanner. It includes all functions of the Anti-Malware scanner and both the top scan engines (Emsisoft Anti-Malware and Ikarus Antivirus).

The Commandline Scanner is a part of the Emsisoft Anti-Malware package, but it can also be downloaded as self-contained package on the download page.

I've been using the GUI version of Emsisoft on some machines and it does pretty well but never tried command line.

Sophos antivirus solution might be your best bet in case of command line, And F-secure too.
I've been using their standalone tool to get rid of very hard rootkits and viruses. However their product support win2k3 OS.
