What is Managed AV?
Huntress’ Managed Antivirus offers a centralized, multi-tenant dashboard to monitor and manage Microsoft Defender AV on all protected endpoints. See detections and events, monitor scans and protections, set exclusions, and execute remediation actions -- all from the Huntress console. In addition, the Huntress SOC team provides an added level of expertise to help analyze a variety of alerts and recommend action items when remediations cannot be performed by Defender AV alone.
