Server 2008 R2 and Forefront

Hi, I am running a server using Windows Server 2008 R2 with only the file sharing and hyper-V roles in a peer-to-peer/workgroup setting.  When I try to install Forefront for virus protection, it tells me that the server needs to be part of a domain.  Is there a way to install Forefront (either Endpoint or Client Security) given my current setup.  I just want some sort of anti-virus protection on the server and would like to stay with a Microsoft product.

Thank you, Hammer8
