Install Security Server through Control Center

Security Server is a dedicated virtual machine that de-duplicates and centralizes most of the antimalware functionality of antimalware clients, acting as a scan server.

You must install Security Server on one or more hosts so as to accommodate the number of virtual machines to be protected.
