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:
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
