AntiVirus Software for Remote Desktop Servers (and sessions)

We are setting up several Remote Desktop Servers running on Hyper-V.

What are the traditional methods for protecting these machines from Malware?  While we will have some control over what the users can and cannot do, I am not sure that it is enough to completely avoid some form of AV.

Thanks!

As the AV solution agent will run as a system service, even if your terminal session specifies access to only one application, the service will be running on the virtual machine and keep it protected.

From my experience with virtualization, you treat these systems exactly as you would a physical system.  So, having said that, any commercial based AV (nod32, kapersky, etc.) would be an appropriate level of protection.  Running a virtualized environment without protection is just as dangerous as running a regular system without protection.

Does this have any direct consequences with the Remote Desktop Services?
