We use Symantec on all our machines, over 50,000. I am not aware of either of those software's on corporate systems. I'd wait till another expert chimes in and see what they say.

We use Symantec Corporate on all our servers and workstations. I have heard of Webroot and Panda here and they have decent reputations. Use a top brand selection that you like and you should be happy.

I've never seen a system with Symantec / Norton on it that worked right.

Interesting comment. 100.0% of all our client machines work correctly.

Endorsed Dr. Klahn for last comment.

I wrote custom detection for polymorphic worm detection at a client and automated the submissions of them because SEP didn't detect them (albeit SEP11/12 at that point).
Checking these samples on VirusTotal showed other vendors detected them for days/weeks, sometimes months.
