In the Malware Protection screen, the Malware Protection Service table displays the various malware protection statuses of your virtual machines or instances:

  • Green indicates a virtual machine in a Secured Malware Protection status.
  • Yellow indicates a virtual machine in a Warning Malware Protection status. 
  • Red indicates a virtual machine in a Critical Malware Protection status.

The Malware Protection status can change based on the following two conditions:

  • The date of your last scan (Last Scan)
  • The date that Armor last received your data (Last Communication Date)

The overall status of your virtual machine is based on the individual status of your virtual machine's subcomponents (subagents), including Malware Protection.

Condition 1 - Date of last scan

If the last scan for Malware Protection took place between 7 to 13 days ago, then the Malware Protection status changes from Secured to Warning.

If the last scan for Malware Protection took place 14 days ago or more, then the Malware Protection status changes from Warning to Critical.

Condition 2 - Date that Armor last received your data

If Armor last received data between 24 to 48 hours ago, then the Malware Protection status changes from Secured to Warning.

If Armor last received data over 48 hours ago, then the Malware Protection status changes from Warning to Critical.

Armor labels the Malware Protection status based on the worst status of the two conditions. For example, if the date of your last scan was 9 days ago, but Armor last received your data 72 hours ago, then overall, the Malware Protection status is Critical
