How to Install Bitdefender:

1. Select the computers you want to install Bitdefender on: Actions -> Install Antivirus software


 2. Choose a Bitdefender package that you want to deploy. You can decide whether or not to reboot before installation (recommended but not required).

3. Once Bitdefender has been deployed, you will see the Status, Software, & Protection field updated. Note: It can take up to 24 hours to install.

Bitdefender deployments are set to run daily quick scans and weekly full scans. You can also run the following types of antimalware scans on-demand:(checkbox computers -> Actions -> Scan Computers)

  • Quick Scan, which uses in-the-cloud scanning to detect malware running in the system. Running a quick scan usually takes less than a minute and uses a fraction of the system resources needed by a regular virus scan.
  • Full Scan checks the entire endpoint for all types of malware threatening its security, such as viruses, spyware, adware, rootkits and others
