Installing Security Manager
There are two ways to install Security Manager: manually or automatically.
Security Manager | AV Defender is only available for the Windows operating system.
A manual installation enables you to target a specific device or group of devices and force an immediate or delayed download. This procedure is fine for one-off operations. For example, if you add a new device and need immediate anti-virus protection. However, if you are adding devices at random intervals throughout a large network, you should use rules to trigger automatic installations.
After a manual installation, you need to install, reboot, upgrade as separate operations or define these tasks in a Maintenance Window.
An automatic installation leverages SolarWinds N-central Rules and Maintenance Windows and lets the system take care of new devices as they are added.
Once the device has Security Manager | AV Defender installed, you can configure a scheduled task to run a scan on the device.
