Security Manager scan types

Security Manager scan tasks enable you to perform security scan scheduled tasks on selected devices. You can create three different types of scan tasks, which AV Defender performs on selected devices.

Scan tasks at the device level are only available if Security Manager | AV Defender is installed on the device.

This procedure can only be performed at the Service Organization level or Customer level.

Quick Scan

Quick Scan is pre-configured to scan only critical system locations and new files. Running a Quick Scan usually takes less than a minute, and uses a fraction of the system resources needed by a regular virus scan. When malware or rootkits are found, AV Defender automatically proceeds with disinfection. If, for any reason, the file cannot be disinfected, then it is moved to quarantine. This type of scanning ignores suspicious files.

Full Scan

Full Scan checks the entire system for all types of malware threatening its security, such as viruses, spyware, adware, rootkits and others. AV Defender automatically tries to disinfect files detected with malware. In case malware cannot be removed, it is contained in quarantine, where it cannot do any harm. Suspicious files are ignored. If you want to take action on suspicious files as well, or if you want other default actions for infected files, then run a Custom Scan.

Custom Scan

Custom Scan enables you to choose the locations to be scanned and to configure the scan options.
