I use both Command Antivirus and Sophos. Give Command a shot. It is not pricey
and it is very solid. It is really based on F-Prot technology. Easy to install
and I have had good luck with it so far. For half the price of what I paid for
Sophos, I got unlimited desktop and server licenses. This is educational
discount though. Sophos was very expensive (including the educational
discount) just for the one server that I bought it for. Sophos will ask the
infamous question "how many e-mail users do you have?" ... I use it on a
server with *no* users :)

My experience with Sophos has not been great. The sales people are very
tricky. Their prices are not defined and/or clear. I got two quotes from two
different people for the same configuration. Support staff immediately throws
the ball in your court before they even listen to the problem. I don't have
good feeling about Sophos. However, their Antivirus software is solid.

Just my 2 cents !!!
