GFI Managed Antivirus (MAV) Deployment Checklist

You are going to deploy managed antivirus to a site.

If this checklist is NOT followed, you are 99.9% guaranteeing that the computers with the AV will have 100% CPU while two or more antivirus solutions are installed. This has happened with ESET and Trend Micro.


Follow this checklist to ensure a smooth transition:

  1. Verify the maintenance window with the client to ensure all machines will be available.
  2. Push and run the appropriate antivirus uninstall utility for the existing antivirus utility.
    1. GFI maintains a list of uninstaller links in this document.
  3. Verify the current antivirus has been removed from the client machines.
  4. Enable managed antivirus antivirus in GFI for the client site.
  5. Verify managed antivirus installation.
