Hello

Thank you for the KB-Post. While PRTG is great in standard bandwidth and uptime / availability monitoring of various target systems and services, it's not specialised at security aspects and the monitoring of this.
The scenario you're describing should be covered by standard enterprise Antivirus solutions, which do show in their admin-console if any client had any errors or warnings in regards to virus detections.

best regards.
