Với tích hợp tính năng VirusTotal (hiện là một phần của Google Cloud), quản trị viên có khả năng tìm hiểu các cảnh báo của họ ở cấp độ sâu hơn.

Who’s impacted


Why it’s important

VirusTotal integration provides an additional layer of investigation on top of existing alerts, allowing administrators to take a deeper look at threats and potential abuse, helping them better protect their organization and data than.

Additional details

VirusTotal provides an investigation layer on top of alerts but is not used directly for detection or alerting. No customer information is shared from Google with VirusTotal unless an administrator clicks it to retrieve the VirusTotal report for a specific entity.

VirusTotal Reports are available in two versions: Standard and Advanced. Standard reports are displayed to administrators with alert center privileges. The Advanced Edition is automatically displayed to paid VirusTotal subscribers who have an active login session using their VT Enterprise user accounts.

For existing VirusTotal Enterprise customers, viewing the VirusTotal report in the alert center does NOT use any of your VirusTotal Enterprise quota. If an administrator opens the VirusTotal website to do more research from the Alert Center, that will count towards standard quota usage in the same way as accessing directly.
