I have been advised by our infrastructure team (that does not do any of the SharePoint administration) that they will be installing anti-virus software on both the test and production environments of my new SharePoint 2013 farm. They have asked me to determine if there are any issues with anti-virus software and SharePoint. I found the article below which indicates that this can be a bit of an issue if the particular AV software does not support the AV API for SharePoint. It looks like there are only a couple that do (according to the list in the article below).
I had read somewhere that Microsoft was dropping Forefront for SharePoint Portal servers which doesn't leave a whole lot of options if it's true.
Does anyone have any guidance on this issue?
