proposing to run another product as well since not all antivirus software is fool-proof. What would be a good complement?


You would not want to run another product in real-time, but you may wish to get another well known scanner, such as F-Secure, McAfee, Norton, Sophos, etc. to run on a scheduled basis.

Most multi-product approaches involve using a different scanner on each layer -- one scanner on the desktop, another on the server and a third on the e-mail level.
