I have a small office with two Windows 2003 servers (one Domain controller, and one member server).  I am just looking for a simple anti virus product that will run on the server operating system.  This seems trivial, but I just want something I can download and buy online, and it seems I am having trouble finding a simple product.  I really like the microsoft security essentials product, and there seems to be a product called Forefront that microsoft makes, but it appears I have to get into the volume licensing arena, and I just want to buy a simple product on their website.

I would go with AVG Antivirus Business Edition: http://www.avg.com/ww-en/antivirus-business

Or

AVG File Server Edition: http://www.avg.com/ww-en/avg-file-server-edition

Affordable prices.

I would give Panda Cloud Office Protection a try:

We have it on every customer client. I have never seen something easy to manage like Panda Cloud Office Protection .

We use Vipre in our enterprise and it done a great job. It's not perfect and sometimes we have to supplement it with Malwarebytes, but I don't think that any AV system is prefect.
