I have been directed by my management to use only a Microsoft antivirus product.

I need to know which one is the very best for Windows Server 2003 for Small Business Server.

My company uses Forefront for all our machines, servers and workstations. I would definitely recommend.

Since this is SBS, which is a server product, and you have to use an MS product, you actually have no choices.
Forefront Client Security for file and memory protection and Forefront Security for Exchange for the Exchagne server on SBS.

Onecare is dead and gone.
MSE does not run on servers and it is against licensing to run it on business client machines. It is a home product, period.
So, back to my last reply.Only one path for SBS with the requirements laid out.

You will also need to seriously check your server spec's as well. FSE is not light on eating resources and can bring a server to a near stand-still if they are insufficient.
