We are running sophos on all our platforms..

We are using the sophos enterprise management tool internally
to manage / update all the winblows desktops etc etc

All FreeBSD boxen (particularly the samba and imap hosts) run sophos
locally via cron, with a master 'repository' FBSD box fetching engine
and ide updates every 4 hours or so, then rsyncing to the other FBSD

And we run the Sophos + Mail Marshal bundle on a W2k server inside the
DMZ. This bundle added policy controls to the basic antiviral sophos
