ImunifyAV provides additional security by scanning for malware on your server. If ImunifyAV finds any malware, it notifies the user in the Files tab of the ImunifyAV interface (WHM » Home » Plugins » ImunifyAV). Your server will automatically install ImunifyAV for free when you install cPanel & WHM. Additionally, you can install ImunifyAV for free from WHM’s Security Advisor interface (WHM » Home » Security Center » Security Advisor). You can also buy a license for ImunifyAV+ or Imunify360 for even more advanced security features.

To learn more about ImunifyAV, visit Imunify’s official product and documentation pages.
