The *best* AV product for SBS is subjective, just like asking someone, "What's the best car to drive?"

Trend Micro "Worry-Free Business Security" is designed to work with SBS, and it's been rated #1 in some studies:

It's the one I use.

x2 - it's all a matter of opinion.  I prefer Eset NOD32 for Exchange on the SBS and NOD32 antivirus on the clients.

I think that you’ll get a lot of very different answers to this, but I would try Kaspersky Small Office Security.

You definitely want to go with Kaspersky its much lighter than other virus protection software and the only one ive seen that successfully prevents viruses. Its also easy to deploy
