Need options to protect vcenter Windows servers with Endpoint antivirus security

Senior Member

Hi, my company is presently using McAfee to protect our vcenter Windows servers. Can anyone please let me know the best options for enrolling VM servers into Endpoint manager so they can be protected using the antivirus policy. We have several Windows OS versions ranging from 2012R2 to 2019 and two DCs. We of course do not want this to be business impacting. Any suggested options with this will be much appreciated, thanks.
