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

  • Anti-Malware – detects and blocks malware threats before they can 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 – examines the behavior of a file and determines whether the file may be a threat.
  • Network traffic scans – provides data protection for email and user web browsing in real time, and scans various types of network traffic for potential security threats.
  • Content Control – provides a way to restrict what users can access and send over the Internet.
  • Anti-Phishing – prevents attempts to obtain sensitive information such as credit card numbers or account information from a bank for malicious reasons.
  • Firewall – controls access to network resources, network services, and the Internet by specified applications.

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

Security Manager | AV Defender also lets you provide disk encryption using Bitdefender's management of BitLocker, available through a separately licensed module.
