The server that has the antivirus will analyze only what it has inside it. Therefore, it will only analyze the shared resources that it exports to other teams.

If you share a folder that all computers use, the moment someone copies a file with a virus, it will clean it up.

In corporate environments, all the PCs have an antivirus, there is a signature server inside the company that is dedicated to update all the antivirus and centralizes the logs with the alerts.

I've never done it, maybe it's silly, but, maybe you can mount in a special folder, say, within Documents a call lan , by sshfs the roots of the connected computers , that is to say, these previously have to allow that type of connection and perhaps the antivirus read those roots mounted each within the lan folder. Those mount points will have to be on the server that has the antivirus.
