Easy to deploy A/V - anti-malware software

Just curious of peoples experience in deploying A/V and anti-malware to MacOS.

Are there any that are easy to deploy and configure versus others? I am having a hard time with the one I am using and so I am looking to see what is out there that is Mac and Jamf Pro friendly.

Jamf offers one: https://www.jamf.com/products/jamf-protect/

My last shop used McAfee, which was a PITA. I am currently deploying Sophos which doesn’t seem as Mac friendly as people have made it out to be, but it’s not bad.

I am interested in looking into DetectX, but I haven’t had much spare time: https://sqwarq.com/detectx/

Thanks for the responses so far, My search continues. I have sent a strongly worded letter to my current AV provider and they have sent it all the way to the internal development team to address. Fingers crossed.

I’ve been deploying Eset Endpoint Security to my Macs for 4 years now. https://www.eset.com/us/

Symantec is a PITA, however Carbon Black Defense is pretty good too.
