5.1 Deploy anti-virus software on all systems commonly affected by malicious software (particularly personal computers and servers).

5.1 For a sample of system components including all operating system types commonly affected by malicious software, verify that anti-virus software is deployed if applicable anti-virus technology exists.

There is a constant stream of attacks using widely published exploits, often called "zero day" (an attack that exploits a previously unknown vulnerability), against otherwise secured systems. Without an anti-virus solution that is updated regularly, these new forms of malicious software can attack systems, disable a network, or lead to compromise of data.
