Enhanced Inventory Item: Antivirus Software

Robot Cloud now has the ability to check for installed antivirus software. With the increased usage of antivirus software on the Mac, this new feature should be helpful in quickly determining if a Mac has any installed and what flavor. Since this type of software is loaded at startup by a LaunchDaemon or Agent, it’s becoming a common startup issue if not updated, or if multiple  versions or variants are installed.

Robot Cloud subscribers can contact us to request a report of this information. So far Robot Cloud checks for the following antivirus software.

  • ClamXav
  • Sophos
  • Avast
  • Intego
  • Bitdefender
  • Avira
  • McAfee
  • Trend Micro

Note: Since this new feature was just released, it may take a few days for all Macs to update this new information.
