"us too." We use Sophos for the desktop as well, and I'm less
involved with that. I gather that the EM Library for local
distribution of signatures and engine updates is slightly a pain, at
least for Windows users, but it works fine for Unix and OS X users
(the EM Library itself has to run on a Windows server, which is
annoying, but it works well enough).
We had used Vexira prior to Sophos, and found Sophos to be more
effective -- as well as being available (and detecting the same
things!) on all the platforms that we could dream of supporting.
