I'm currently using Symantec.  The past 5 years though I've also used Sunbelt's VIPRE & McAfee.  For me personally as the one who has to deploy & administer the whole thing, Sunbelt's VIPRE worked best.  Easiest to deploy & manage. It also left a much smaller footprint on the end user computers as well.

Symantec is a NO GO on Windows 2008 Servers we have had multiple issues SEP running within a Windows 2008 Server which network communications dropping.

We have moved to McAfee since SEP came out because of the huge problems we have experience with SEP. AVG has worked pretty well as well.

We run Kaspersky Enterprise Space. Supports all the way up to 2008 R2, Windows 7, etc. We also use it on Exchange and Terminal Servers, and has support for mobile devices.

The admin console is pretty easy and supports push installation of AV to workstations and/or servers. It also push installs any other software you want pushed. It's pretty feature rich from an admin point of view.

Little bit memory hungry on the resources, but it can be tweaked accordingly.

I have used F-Secure for the past 6 - 7 years successfully.
With the new PSB function I can also manage all my customers AV from a single web interface.
F-Secure does not bog down machines like some AV programs do and pricing is very competitive
