Exchange 2016 Malware Scanning

Does anyone have any opinions on Exchange 2016 native malware scanning? Is there a noticeable performance effect? Does it work well and is it configurable? I getting ready to install Exchange 2016 and i have the option to leave it default or disable and enable later? Just curious about opinions with it.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Just disable it. Microsoft native scanning, is a headache for admins. Does nothing and uses unnecessary resources. Better to use 3rd party product, like Brightmail, EOP or message labs.
