There is
a) BigFix Client Manager for Endpoint Protection (CMEP), it is intended to supersede the BigFix Client Manager for Anti-Virus (CMAV)
b) BigFix/Trend Micro Endpoint Protection

For (a), check out it user guide. Pg 27 stated additional scan options that enable you to select scan inclusions and exclusions, specify advanced scan options, specify virus detection options, specify destination options for unwanted programs, and specify log file options. Typically fixlet should handle those tasks but if it need to achieve what you want, you may have to engage with BigFix (and AV) support as it may eventually required that certain option that the AV can take in as configuration (or even sending a one time patch to achieve it (maybe to edit some registry depending on the AV).

For the supported AV, see pg 4 - 5. It include vendors such as McAfee, Symantec, IBM and Trend Micro

For (b), it is inherently scanning client hard drives, files and/or the boot sector. There is no check on the Smtp scanning option though. There is the firewall that protect against both inbound and outbound port violations on your endpoints, but it may not be what you are looking out for

Just some thought, it would be best to check if the AV vendor even support it via their centralised mgmt console, if so, chances are higher for customised fixlet
