Running an antivirus inventory

You can run an inventory of the antivirus software that is installed on your managed computers. Running an antivirus inventory can help you to determine which groups of computers may be vulnerable. You can then migrate these computers to have the latest version of Symantec Endpoint Protection client installed.

See About Antivirus Inventory.

You can create an inventory by scheduling the antivirus inventory task to run on the groups of computers that you specify. The inventory information is displayed in the Antivirus Version summary Web part after you run the antivirus inventory task.

Running the antivirus inventory on a regular basis is a good practice to continue tracking the installed version of Symantec Endpoint Protection. This practice help you identify computers in your environment that need to be migrated.
