It all depends on the requirements you have but since most users seem to recommend sophos- I have to let you know that sophos used (haven't tested the newer version on my mac for quite some time) to run with root privileges. This is a THEORETICAL security concern as someone can compromise the sophos product and run anything as root. Having said that this is almost true with any program running with such privileges.
