Check for installed anti virus

This question has suggested answer(s)

Is there a script available which will check each computer and report any that DONT have anti virus installed?

 

I am putting together an agent for doing network assessments for prospects.

 

Any advice on how YOU do network assessments  would also be appreciated!

  • You can use the Get Variable step with a WMI Property to check.  A few issues with this are:

    1. Not all AV's report themselves correctly to the MS Security Center

    2. Servers don't have Security Security Center

    3. Probably a few others I can't think of at the moment :)

    Anyway, check the WMI's for:

    root\SecurityCenter:AntiVirusProduct.displayName

    and/or

    root\SecurityCenter2:AntiVirusProduct.displayName

  • Run a report in the software section with 'show description matching' *virus* (include the *'s) which will give you a list of machines with AV installed. Then compare it to what machines you have and you can see which machines DON'T have AV installed.

  • The report idea will work as well, BUT it assumes the virus program includes the word "virus" - which isn't always the case.

  • True, but 9 times out of 10 when I have used it it works well.

    This script posted in the Resource section works well for me since I do not support any servers at this point
