Scanning Devices



Hello. You have arrived at an outdated topic. Please click this link to be redirected to the updated Endpoint Protection Admin Guide.

From the Devices page, you can run a remote scan on a device.

Note:

If you have Mobile Protection software that is version 3.7.1 or greater, cloud definitions are always up to date, and you will not need to push them. However, if you have software that is version 3.7.0 or older, the Scan Now and Force Definitions Update buttons will be available and you will still be able to schedule and push updates.

To scan a device:

  1. Log in to the SecureAnywhere website.
  2. Click the Mobile Protection tab. The Mobile Protection console displays with the Status tab active.
  3. Click the Devices tab. The Devices tab displays.
  4. From the Devices tab, double-click on the device you want to scan. The Device Details window displays with the Security Status tab active.
  5. Click the Security Status tab.
  6. In the upper right corner, click the Scan Now button.
    Note:

    If you have Mobile Protection software that is version 3.7.1 or greater, cloud definitions are always up to date, and you will not need to push them. However, if you have software that is version 3.7.0 or older, the Scan Now and Force Definitions Update buttons will be available and you will still be able to schedule and push updates.

    When the scan completes, the updated device status displays on the Security Status page and the scan is added to the History tab.
