Enterprise Level Anti-Virus

For the SysAdmins that hang out here,

What AV software do you use and how much do you like it?

I'm migrating from CA eTrust 8.1 to Total Defense r12/v14 and it's been a major pain, so much so, that once our SSCM 2012 install is finished, dropping CA/TD and going to MSE.

Re: Enterprise Level Anti-Virus

We use Kaspersky Anti-Virus for Windows Servers. Frankly, I don't care for it too much. It errors out far more than I'd like on several of the servers, and on one of them it crashes all the time. It's a little bit of a RAM hog.

Based on my experience with CA's desktop products, I wouldn't want to touch their enterprise products.

If anyone has any other suggestions or experiences, I'd be interested in hearing them. I'm a little loathe to spend more time on these Windows servers setting up and reconfiguring a whole new AV system, but if there's something that's easy and compelling, I might be interested in checking it out next year when the license is up for renewal.

MSE is only licensed for use on up to 10 PCs. If you have more than 10 PCs, you'll need to use Microsoft's Endpoint Protection.

I don't care for McAfee Virusscan itself but McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator is pretty easy as a central management system to manage the environment.
