Antivirus for SharePoint 2016/13 on-premise

New Contributor
I know in the past Microsoft recommended having Antivirus (AV) solution for SharePoint(SP). I wonder how common or uncommon it is installing SP specific AV programs into your SP 2016 or 2013 on-premise environment. I look forward to hearing your experience on this.

I would strongly recommend installing a SharePoint-specific A/V solution for on-premises deployments.
SharePoint Online already has this in the background, but for on-premises you need to stay protected as it scans files as they get uploaded - something that should always be on for every server.

@Astatke Belay  I think that you have to protect your PC with the best antivirus in any case, even if you use SharePoint or not. The software developers tell that their software is safe and protected but it is better to get more protection for your system.
