Just looking for a bit of advice on what AV product to use for SP2010 Foundy now that MS have binned Forefront...

I know McAfee do one and we're getting quotes for that but can anyone recommend any others?

Specifically one that would work with the original build of SP2010 (the farm has never been patched because it runs a load of custom code and they didn't want to risk patching) would be ideal.
