NOTE: Your company may have alternate specific guidance for how you should use anti-virus software - please check with your IT and compliance teams.
It's important to install and use Anti-Virus (AV) software on your machine. Ask your IT administrator or manager which AV solution is the chosen provider for your company. If you are using the Drata Application, it will report back to the Drata system that you are compliant.
Here is a representative list of AV software the Drata Agent currently supports. If you are using something different, reach out to our team to have it added as an approved option.
