Hi,
vshield might be your friend, but you will need to find a vendor who can do AV using vshield (trend micro).

keep in mind that all of that depends on your XD usage, are you using persistent desktops or not, if not then I don't think that AV on the vms worth it.

if you are using persistent VMs, then you can divide them into groups and schedule scans on different timing.
