[root@master install_zone]# uname -a
Linux master.sys65.com 3.10.0-327.el7.x86_64 #1 SMP Thu Oct 29 17:29:29 EDT 2015 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

we want to install the anti virus from Symantec

Sav-12.0.3710-1000.i386
Savap-x64-12.0.3750-1000.x86_64
Savui-12.0.3710-1000.i386

can we install the rpm's:

Sav-12.0.3710-1000.i386
Savui-12.0.3710-1000.i386

inspite the linux is 64Bit?

The answer is yes, you can. But any software that requires the 64 bit libraries will need them installed also. You cannot mix and match 32-bit and 64-bit software and libraries, though they will happily coexist. Unless you are trying to install 64-bit software on a 32-bit operating system or hardware. I don't think that would work. 64-bit operating system + hardware equals goodness for both 32-bit and 64-bit software.
