Testing with EICAR - no Alert in Enteprise Console

I installed the actual Enterprise Console an protected 4 Computers for testing purposes.

 

If i try to download the eicar-Testfile on one of the computers Sophos blocks and alerts on the local PC.

 

But why no Alert is shown in the Enterprise Console?

Hello Juergen,

 

if you right-click and View Computer Details you will see the corresponding entry.  Also a Report will show the event.

You won't get a persistent alert in SEC though as the threat has been successfully dealt with.

Hi Christian,

 

thank you for your reply that helped me much: 

I can see the threat in Computer Details and in a report.

 

So i will do reports periodically to stay informed whats going on with my pcs.
