As it stands currently, the AV Defender Status report run through N-central does not give a clear picture on which devices are considered to be "Normal" and which are "Not Monitored", which makes troubleshooting difficult
I've noticed that some of our clients' devices have not been getting AV Defender agent updates. Our maintenance windows are usually set on the weekends or late at night, so I suspect that the users are turning off their PCs despite us telling them otherwise. For Windows updates, there's an option to have the updates installed the next time the machine boots up. It would be great if there was a similar option for AV Defender. ...more »
I would like to be able to select all or several devices at the client level and suspend AV Defender for 30, 60, or 90 minutes or custom time to allow software to be installed. Currently you have to go into each computer individually and turn it off and then go back and turn it on.
It would be nice to have the ability to temporarily pause or outright cancel an active scan that AV Defender has running. Had some situations where a scan is started but begins to degrade the machines performance and the only way to stop the scan is to kill the AV Defender process.
I want to be able to specify the drive and path that AVD uses to cache updates for dependent endpoints. Any image-based backup has to deal with extreme rate of change from AVD Update servers as it recreates the entire definition set from the small updates it receives from BitDefender.
If we could change the cache location to another volume we can exclude that volume and its volatile data from backup.
Looking for the ability to generate a report which outlines the exclusions in place at a client's site.
When selecting Content Control> Internet Control and adding filtering by Category, and adding Whitelist and Blacklist rules... It doesn't work. I added the "Social Network" rule, and applied it to my machine, then made sure the new module is active and was able to view facebook.com without issues. Long story short: Support says you have to enable Network Scan and select Scan web (HTTP) traffic, as well as Scan SSL to ...more »
We've discovered that it is possible for policy changes to not propagate down to devices, but av defender will just show that everything is fine rather than alerting about a compliance issue like virtually all other managed av products.
It would be nice to have a metric in av defender status for policy compliance.
Add the possibility to change the display language in German.
It would be even better if you had different languages to choose from, for example French, Spanish, Protogis, Swedish, Danish, Italian
@chris.reid - The AV Status script no longer seems to detect av defender on desktops, let alone servers. I get that monitoring should occur with the av defender services, but surely having the script tell you this would be a good thing? Then we can run the one script across all devices in order to tell what av is being used ...more »
Please add the ability to display the AV Defender UI in French
The ability to run AV Defender scans on a device in Safe Mode to ensure that the infected files do not have anything in active memory. Currently with v6 there is no way to run sans in Safe Mode which prevents self-resolution of an active infection when it cannot be cleaned/deleted in normal boot.
