Well, in fact i have spent some time on this, and i didn’t find anyone yet offering this solution.

But,

There is a Antigen product called Antigen for Instant Messaging, but there is only support for LCS 2003 & 2005. Microsoft i currently branding Antigen for IM to match the Forefront product family but does not yet support OCS, but there should be plans for a release sometime in 2009. The new product will be called Microsoft Forefront Security for Office Communications Server, but we will have to wait
(More: http://www.microsoft.com/forefront/prodinfo/roadmap/default.mspx)

Trend Micro also have products for the LCS versions, and i´m waiting for them to get back to me about when they will support OCS (i’ll update later)

Symantec is the same story, only support for old versions.

Update:

Trend Micro reports back that there will be support for OCS 2007 in there “Instant Messaging Security” product, that will be released in Q3 2008.
