Security Manager | AV Defender provides an all-in-one solution for protection of customer devices and networks. SolarWinds N-central uses Bitdefender, an award-winning security software to provide quality security and up-to-date virus signatures to ensure devices are safe from Internet threats. SolarWinds N-central provides network protection features including:

  • Anti-Malware – detecting and blocking malware threats before they have a chance to inflict damage to devices. AV Defender makes a distinction between an "infected file" and a "suspected file" based on the confidence that it has detected a security threat.
  • Behavioral Analysis – examining the behavior of a file and determining if the file may be a threat.
  • Network traffic scans – providing data protection for email and user web browsing in real time, and scanning various types of network traffic for potential security threats.
  • Content Control – providing a way to restrict what users can access and send over the Internet.
  • Anti-Phishing – preventing the attempt to obtain sensitive information such as credit card numbers or account information from a bank for malicious reasons.
  • Firewall – controlling access to network resources, network services, and to the Internet by specified applications.

Using security profiles, you can configure tailored security settings to best suit your customer's needs.
