If you are on a budget then ClamWin is pretty decent and it's free.  I've used this for a few single server environments and has done a good job.

Otherwise my personal preference is ESET for Business

Kaspersky AV is what I recommend, it does take some tweaking for your environment, but I feel its the best product.

Sophos is a good one for enterprise systems.

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

Clam doesn't patrol.  Kaspersky and Eset are pretty bloated.  You can use Microsoft Security Essentials on Server but it's unsupported:

I had a client with AVG, it works better than you'd think.
