I'd recommend using two products.  I run Trend Micro's antivirus on a gateway 
system (including the anti-spam module) that forwards mail to the internal 
Exchange servers.  The Exchange servers and the desktops run Norton Corporate 

I've found Norton's Corporate Edition to be hands-down the best antivirus 
package for desktops and servers.  The management GUI and automatic signature 
file distribution makes it the best solution, imho.

The problem with Norton is that they can be slow to come out with signatures 
for the latest virus threats.  Trend Micro, however, is right on top of it and 
the viruses will get caught at the gateway system pretty fast.
