Run AV scan on Mac Devices

Occasional Contributor



Is it possible to Run AV scan on Mac device from Security Center in ATP Defender for Endpoints? At the moment this feature is greyed-out.

You can run a scan from the MDE portal on macOS. To do this, you first need to enable real-time protection.

Hello Davor, thank you for your question

The feature for triggering a scan remotely from Microsoft Defender Security Center is not yet implemented for MacOS. This is currently on our roadmap.
I have real time protection enabled and the feature is still greyed out.
That was according to MSFT rep, so IDK. Gonna assume Cory is right on this one
