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.

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.
