    MSE was never available for any version of Windows Server.

    The only free AV for servers that I know of is ClamAV but it gets bad reviews. If this is a production server, spend the money and get a decent AV.

    You can install Microsoft Forefront Protection which should be available for installing on Servers. Although these are discontinued.

    ClamAV is no good as it does not do On Access protection.
    TRy third party products such as McAfee, Symantec, Kaspersky etc

    I believe this could be worth a look. http://technet.microsoft.com/en-au/security/jj900682.aspx
