Just to add to the discussion...

I sincerely think that the AV market is one that in the past has provided a placebo effect for the enterprise.

Sure, AV can reduce the attack surface to some degree yet the sad fact is that this is not 100% effective - zero-day viruses yet to be identified and have signatures created for them get through.

As a friend of mine who worked at Kaspersky would say to me... "you are only as good as your last update". In the same vein that one faces APT attacks one has to have ADS (advanced defence strategies) to combat this issue.
