I'm look for an enterprise quality Anti-virus / Malware for my Linux
machines . Mostly Ubuntu on the desktop, CentOS and RHEL servers. I
must have real time scanning, on demand scanning, and centralized

Is there anything out there that can do this ?

Just a final remark,
Most AV-scanners are not capable of detecting everything.
If you really want to protect Microsoft desktops behind your Linux machine, you need multiple scanners serialized.

What's been said before, Kaspersky is really good specially compared with clamav.
Last time I tried clamav with a population of captured viri, it only detected 60% of them.
BUT: ... it did detect the ones that Kasperky didn't.

So the combination of multiple different detectors (not specifically these two) is advisable.
