    agree with mike completely, no single av can give you the right
    protection. have helped so many companies in this area and i guess,
    the 2-tier or 3-tier (if you have the budget and necessary resources)
    approach would be the best solution for you. they have different
    signature databases, engines and features. in combination, they work

We were using McAfee until recently. However, we experienced frequent memory leaks, application errors, slow definition updates and a horrid enterprise console and decided to make the switch. Also pricing was very reasonable for eTrust. I still hear good things about Norton but more on the consumer side of things. We use Symantec on our Exchange and Sophos on our SMTP gateways for a 3 tier approach to virus control.
