Methods used to prevent antivirus storms and improve antivirus efficiency

You are advised to deploy antivirus software that is optimized for virtualization platforms, such as Symantec SEP 12.1 and later.
(1) Preventing antivirus storms.
A control center provides unified scheduling for antivirus tasks. Set automatic virus removal and database update to be performed during low traffic hours.
(2) Sharing scan results and improving system efficiency.
The HASH value in a VM's scan result file is sent to the control center, which sends this value to other VMs. The antivirus software on other VMs stores a HASH value list locally.
