There are the "big names" in AVs for Servers: BitDefender, ESET, Kaspersky... difficult to know which is best, maybe You can check "independent organizations" (😅 :rolleyes:) malware results/test or just try Yourself...

Would be also welcome You fill up all the missing data of Your system in the 1st post, thanks :)

Do you have any other suggestions/recommendations for server-based antivirus software?

@Gilbert2020:

Please specify the Operating System.

Set UAC to Always Notify.

Specify the exact version of product You have installed.

In Photos and Files Backup , consider also cloud services.

In Backup and RollBack, You may add a full Image System BackUp solution: Macrium Reflect Free or AOEMI Backupper, both are free and reliable.

In Periodic Scanners, You may add MalWareBytes Free, EmsiSoft Emergengy Kit and HitManPro Free.

In Browsers and Extensions, You may add uBlock Origin or AdGuard AdBlocker.

A PassWord Manager would be welcome also.

Also as perviously commented , You are using a server OS as a Workstation :unsure:

Please kindly reflect Your changes editing Your config, and announcing them here, thanks for sharing :)

We are now installing the Kaspersky Endpoint security cloud. They have a 1-month trial version. We'll update you once we are done with the testing. :)

Windows Server 2008 R2
The support of Windows Server 2008 R2 and thus the delivery of security updates was discontinued on 14 January 2020.

With the paid ESU (Extended Security Updates) programme, support for bulk buyers can be extended via the volume licensing programme up to a maximum of 10 January 2023.

Did you use the paid ESU? else your system is highly on danger!
