You probably don't need it, but Comodo is probably your best bet.

Appears that it is for Debian, can it run on rhel?
What email gateway does it support?

What's wrong with ClamAV?
You can get it using apt-get and it's completely free.

I last searched ClamAV & don't recall it could do realtime/on-access
scan or unless we install ClamFS ??

Try to minimize compiling / making  fanotify ourselves.
is there a ready-to-run/use/install fanotify?

If you have a machine that uses systemd it should have fanotify available.
Test with

grep FANOT /boot/config-`uname -r`

Response on Debian 8:
CONFIG_FANOTIFY=y
# CONFIG_FANOTIFY_ACCESS_PERMISSIONS is not set

We are starting out for the 1st time : no Linux in our environment yet:
deciding if we shd go RHEL or CentOS or Debian

Or does Redhat Support site has a ready-to-install rpm for Fanotify

I use Debian for all my servers (switched from CentOS a few years ago) so I don't know if RHEL comes with built-in support.

Either send an email cu Redhat or install RHEL in a VM and test.
