Endpoint Standard: What is the impact of disabling "Use Windows Security Center" in the policy?

Environment

  • Endpoint Standard (was CB Defense)
  • Carbon Black Cloud Windows Sensor: 2.1.0.11 and Higher
  • Microsoft Windows: Windows 7 and later

Question

What is the impact of disabling "Use Windows Security Center" in the policy?

Answer

  • If "Use Windows Security Center" is enabled, then Carbon Black Cloud is listed as the antivirus provider on the device.
  • If "Use Windows Security Center" is disabled, then Carbon Black Cloud is NOT listed as the antivirus provider on the device.

Additional Notes

  • Windows Security Center (WSC) requires Windows devices to have an antivirus provider.
  • The Carbon Black Cloud is a Microsoft-certified antivirus provider for WSC.
  • The "Use Windows Security Center" option is enabled by default in the default (Standard) policy group.
  • You can disable WSC integration at any time; Doing so does not disable sensor protection
  • Endpoint Standard orgs provisioned before July 2017 will need to enable WSC in policy sensor settings.
