My SBS 2008 runs with Forefront for Exchange 2010 and ClamWin 0.97.2.  Forefront Endpoint runs on my workstations.  I'd like to replace the SBS 2008 box anti-virus with a more sophisticated malware solution than ClamWin.  I've tried Symantec Endpoint but it seemed to slow things down.

What are others using in this situation?

When it comes to A/V, *everyone* has an opinion, so I'm not sure how you'll decide what "answer" to accept. But what I can tell you:

Trend Micro has been putting a *lot* of effort into focusing on the small business and is very popular amongst SBS experts. Admittedly I am not one of those, as Trend has also suffered some quality control issues....but so does every A/V vendor, to play devil's advocate.

I personally like GFI since they bought Vipre. Very lightweight, very effective.

Sophos also gets good grades in the SBS world.

Download each (all have trials) try them, and decide what works for you.
