    "Best" is subjective since if you don't need it, how can someone do it better.

    I will say that if you are sharing files with Windows machines (ftp, samba, what have you), Linux can "back up" the protection the Windows machines are running by re-scanning those files.

    I always suggest clamAV, others like AvantGuard(?).

    MacFee offers an official supported product but we have a hell of a time getting it to work properly.
