Dear Rhamzin

The WMI security sensor https://www.paessler.com/manuals/prtg/ssl_security_check_sensor.htm can be used to monitor the status of virus scanners as long as the virus scanners report to the Windows security center.

The Windows security center is not available for Windows Server, meaning this sensor cannot be used with Windows Server 2008.
