In this article, we'll use the acronymous BEST to refer to as Bitdefender Endpoint Security Tool
This release integrates the Antimalware module of Bitdefender, which protects servers and workstations against malware.
2. Activation / Deactivation
Caution: The activation and deactivation are done in the background and takes circa 30 seconds. Quick activation and deactivation have not been tested.
Here's how to perform the activation/deactivation:
Go to Settings > Integrations and insert a valid API key
Then, the user gets a success message and a background process starts: a Relay Agent is installed on ACSIA.
When the installation is complete, a new module named Anti Malware with "STARTED" status will appear in the ACSIA module lists.
