We have been using a Monitoring System (CentraStage) for all our managed desktops and servers. One of the things it does is generates a ticket if a desktop has an AV problem e.g. is out of date, not installed, disabled etc. this all happens via agent which uses the Windows Security Centre that’s great for desktops but WSC does not exist on Server’s.
Now you can write your own Monitors and there are loads in the community for most AV but not F-Secure. We obvious use the PSB portal but ideally we would also like it in our monitoring system which is much more proactive.
So how can I get the status of a Servers F-Secure:
- It is installed (OK I can manage that one)
- It is Active
- Up to date
What can I check for / against to give me the info above, and if there are multiple what is the most robust.
