Recommendations for Anti-Virus Protection on Mtn. Lion - Windows 7 MPBr

What is the accepted practice regarding anti-virus software on a Mac running Windows 7 via Parallels Desktop 8? I would like to do all my internet access on the Mountain Lion side. But I suppose I'll need some access on the windows side as well to download updates to the Windows OS. I have been using FireFox with Norton Internet Security on my old XP laptop.

Is  the Mac side generally considered free from virus problems? If I only access the Microsoft site (in Windows 7) for updates, would that sort of internet access be considered low risk regarding viruses?

What do you recommend?
