Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I wounder what antivirus software is recommended for a Windows Server 2008 or a Small Business Server 2008.

I would like to have one that:

  • Is easy to maintain.
  • Has good performance

I don't need anyone that is complex and has support for clients. It's a small office with just a few computers.

Well in this case he asks about server antivirus software, not corporate ones :D –  Florent Courtay Apr 29 '10 at 14:34

I think that Forefront client security (server equivalent of MS security essentials) should be the easiest thing to implement on server OS

I have to say that forefront works great, has caught stuff that symntec didn't and isn't a resource pig. Pricing is also better (although in this case you'd have to check) as you pay per user not per system.
