Team: Huntress EDR
Product: Third party antivirus
Environment: Huntress Managed Microsoft Defender
Summary: In order to use Huntress Managed AV, only Windows Defender should be enabled. All other 3rd party AVs should be disabled.
If Managed AV is enabled, does it impact the existing Antivirus product that we are using?
All Third-party Antivirus should be disabled and Windows Defender must be enabled. Having third-party AV installed will result in Windows Defender disabling itself. Huntress' Managed Microsoft Defender will not affect existing third-party AV configurations--if Defender is disabled, it will remain disabled.
