    Hi

    The usual ones you should be familiar with? Sophos have a mac client as does MacAfee. Symantec are still doing one although its not that obvious from their website. The last time I looked into it you had to call them. To be honest I'm not a fan of Symantec's products.

    I've heard Avast and AVG are developing a client for the mac platform? Perhaps they're now available. Something you could Google for? ClamX is free to download. Intego provide AV software for the mac platform as well. They also do a Server version.

    I use Sophos since we have a license for it... I assume it's doing its job!

    You're right but technically so is the poll as there is a port for OSX here: ClamXav

    They do call it ClamXav though but it is based on the ClamWin engine.

    Interestingly it looks like ClamWin even has a server console to control clients now but I don't know how far along it it.
