Updating client hardware definitions

With the update servers of Kaspersky Lab or other FTP or HTTP locations, updates are downloaded over standard network protocols.

You can use Auto Upgrade to install a new version of Symantec Endpoint Protection 12.1 on all the clients in a group.

Use it to upgrade multiple computers in a network to a new version of Symantec Endpoint Protection with a minimum of user intervention.

The Quick Start wizard creates this type of task: «Update – Windows Workstations».

If computers are combined into groups and the optimal updating procedure is different for various groups, you can create a customized update task for each group.

If protection tools other than Kaspersky Endpoint Security 8.0 (for example, Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Mac or Kaspersky Anti Virus 6.0 for Windows Servers MP4) are used in your network, they need separate update tasks.

Each product update task has a specific schedule and settings, including: Updates are retrieved from the Administration Server by the Network Agents.

To upgrade Symantec Endpoint Protection across a network, it is only necessary to manually upgrade the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager.

After the upgrade, the clients will download the install package assigned to their group as they heartbeat to the manager, or on a schedule.

If you are on a personal connection, like at home, you can run an anti-virus scan on your device to make sure it is not infected with malware.
