Our insurer requires information regarding the frequency of updates to definition files. How often are definitions updated? And if there is no set schedule, what is the greatest number of days between historical definition updates?

Hello @Stretch33 

 

May I ask for which Device? The Mac Client is the only Client that still uses definitions and I don’t know how often they update the definitions.

 

The PC Client and the Android Client are Full Cloud based and it continually adds protection for new Malware without definitions ever!

 

 

 

HTH,

These are Windows 10 systems. The actual syntax of the question from our insurer is “How frequently are the virus detection signatures updated?”

 

Thanks
