OT (Kind of) Opinions on AV Software

We are in the process of implementing commercial AV under MailScanner
processing 15,000 - 50,000 messages a day on RedHat 8.0/Sendmail

Sophos seems to be used widely on the list. My question is: has the
cost of Sophos (2200 users) and the tedious licensing been justified by it's
performance and tech support.

I've seen Command recommended on the list. The cost for their product
is on the other end of the spectrum and the licensing is a breeze. Does it
compare to Sophos? are the updates automated with MailScanner as they are
with Sophos?

Feel free to reply to me off list.
