Hi rama

You can use Mcafee EPO suite.
It's not only for SBS, but you can use this for all your company.

I use this product,ans with epo console it's very friendly.

How many users / servers ?

ok with epo, you install a mcafee agent on each computer / server, and this agent connect on your
epo server for get recent update, get security policies and send reporting.
After, you can view this reporting directly on a web interface.

It's not only a antivirus, it's a very complete product for increase the security in your company.

you can download a trial


or test on a demo website.

I have to chime in here. I have sbs 2011 and after a long drawn out conversation with McAfee Tech. EPO is not compatible with SBS software. I would recommend Trend Micro, Vipre or NOD 32.

To retract my statement, I found the fix to install this!

on SBS 2011 you need to do the following EPO installs SQL MGR 2005:
start > SQL Server Configuration Mangager
select SQL Sever 2005 Services in left pane > then in right pane change the bullet to "This account" from Built in account
Then fill in the appropriate informaiton then hit apply.

and bam! you get EPO on sbs 2011
