Business Antivirus

We are looking at getting a business class antivirus solutions for or small business.  We had Symantec corporate edition 10.1 that is no longer updating.  From what I have read online, ESET and bitdefender keep coming up as a few of the best.  What is your opinion on these solutions?  Do you have any other solutions that might be better?  We have about 50 client workstations running mostly Windows 7, but a few remaining XP machines.

Thanks for your help in advance.

You will pretty much get as many suggestions as there are experts who will answer.  I have evaluated most of the solutions out there.  I eventually settled on Vipre for Business and have not looked back.  That being said ESET does have a better console and abetter overall score.  Comodo may have the best console since they have improved it, and from what I saw of their business product it looked to die for.  You can evaluate the Comodo product  with 10 free licenses by downloading from here:

The guy whole was the lead on creating this product told me that many of the people who use the free 10 licenses use it at home so that can remotely service friends and relatives anywhere.

I am seriously considering moving from Vipre to Comodo when our license expires in february.

I like trendmicro worry free business security advanced.  Easy to use management console and grouping of workstations.  It is lightweight and a pretty good webfilter if you want certain sites blocked and all that jazz.  Pretty much my favorite to use because it can be configured to basically take care of itself and just email you if there is an issue.

Forgot to say that Vipre and comodo are the leaders on most of the comparative sites of reactive and proactive respectively.
