Hello,

I am struggling to find some good advice on the best antivirus and security suite (e.g. to stop scripts etc).  

I purchased and installed Avast Antivirus File Server Edition that completed spoiled my Windows 2012 Server only to be told that it doesn't support Windows Server 2012 R2.   I would like someone with good experience using the software as I am about to do a very comprehensive server installation of multiple business intelligence and applications and the last thing I want is for issues that may impact this.  Looking for a software that is stable and anyone has a good track record with.

I am looking for a professional antivirus / security suite and prepared to pay for this obviously.

Interested in anyone's experience on Windows 2008 Server also if anyone has experience on best antivirus / security suite on that used in Enterprise type environments.

Many thanks!
Raheel
