Server MS 2008 R2 AntiVirus Protection

I just started administering a single server running MS server 2008 R2 and don't see any anti-virus on it. I just want to confirm that MS 2008 R2 does not include it's own built in anti-virus and does need to have a McAfee or Symantec running on it. Which anti-virus would you recommend, I've seen mostly McAfee in my experience.

Thanks,

You could download and run "Microsoft Security Essentials" (or another that you like).

So it sounds like antivirus software should run on the server.
