Configure security alert settings

You can configure security-related alerting so that you can be notified when specific events are detected on managed devices in your system. Security Antivirus uses the standard Ivanti alerting tool.

The alert settings dialog contains options for both vulnerability alerting and antivirus alerting.

Antivirus alerting

Antivirus alert settings are found on the Antivirus tab of the Alert settings dialog.

You must first configure the antivirus alerts in the Alert Settings tool in the console. Antivirus alerts include:

  • An alertable antivirus action failed
  • An alertable antivirus action succeeded
  • Virus outbreak alert (per virus)

The following antivirus events can generate antivirus alerts:

  • Virus removal failed
  • Virus removal succeeded
  • Quarantine failed
  • Quarantine succeeded
  • Deletion failed
  • Deletion succeeded

Select which alerts you want generated. The time interval option lets you avoid receiving too many alerts. More than one alert (for any antivirus trigger) during the specified time interval is ignored.

You can view the complete antivirus alert history for a device in its Security and Patch Information dialog box. Right-click a device, select Security and Patch > Security and Patch Information, select the Antivirus type in the Type list, and then select the Antivirus History object.
