Endpoint Security as an A/V

Recommended Posts

Hello:

Not sure which forum to ask this in.. My apologies if it is the wrong one.

I have been sold Malwarebytes Endpoint Security is an antivirus solution combined with anti malware, anti ransomware software.  I am a bit nervous that it isn't.. I have the management console installed on my server which is Windows 2012 R2 Essentials and primarily Windows 7 workstations.   I removed the soon to be expiring Symantec software on the server and workstations and now my Server Dashboard is full of "can't find anti-virus' on the workstations type messages.  If this is indeed a full package solution, I just need re-assurance so that I can find a way to turn the messages off that are showing up on my server.  Windows Defender became active once i uninstalled Symantec on the workstations and I had to add exclusions for Malwarebytes because it slowed all the workstations down and things wouldn't load or crashed.  I am wondering if i need to buy the Symantec product again afterall.. I switched to Malwarebytes because i have used the free version in the past to help remediate personal workstations and the occasional work one. It did an excellent job to kill things..  I am sold on ransomware protection for the company..  

I read online conflicting messages about if it is an antivirus as well or that i should be still having a separate antivirus. Not sure who to believe.   I just purchased it last week so have the latest version of Endpoint Security.

Thank you in advance.

Hi @Peb Endpoint Security is equivalent to AV but since all the pieces of the program that make up the client agent are each separate modules, it cannot register in Windows Action Center as an AV.
