Verify that user cannot disable or alter anti-virus settings on all managed endpoints |
Properly configured and running anti-virus on every endpoint is not a guarantee of efficient protection, unless it’s protected against alterations by users. Many stores are told about users who skip virus scans or even completely disable it, because it "annoys them" or for other reasons. This Action1 query verifies that anti-virus settings are protected from alteration by regular non-administrative users and allows to prove your compliance with this section of PCI DSS.
