LogMeIn has added anti-virus monitoring and management capabilities to its IT automation product.

According to the company, the additions to LogMeIn Central make it easier to secure remote PCs as it gives IT professionals the ability to monitor anti-virus installations, run full threat scans and receive virus threat detections on any number of remote PCs under management.

The company said that the new capabilities include support for anti-virus software offerings including Norton, AVG, McAfee, Kaspersky Lab and Microsoft Security Essentials and run on Windows 7, XP, Vista and Windows Servers 2003 and 2008.

Matt Kaplan, LogMeIn's vice president of products, said: “When we talked to our customers about anti-virus management, it was clear that threat detection and security are critical mandates, but to date, monitoring and managing a mixed environment of anti-virus products has been a cumbersome task.

“The new capabilities in LogMeIn Central were designed to centralise and simplify the most common tasks associated with anti-virus management.”
