You would like to know how to manage CAS license

Resolution

The licensed components on CAS vary in how they are managed.
The licensed components include the appliance's base license and Sandboxing, while Malware vendors and Whitelisting services are subscription-based. 

Update settings are not documented in CAS configuration guide.
However, you can find license details by running command " show license" example as below: 

CAS# show licenses 
* Base license 
* Kaspersky Labs (1839 days remaining) 
McAfee, Inc. (unknown) 
Sophos, Plc. (1839 days remaining) 
* Sandboxing 
* Whitelisting (1839 days remaining) 
CAS# 

You can also see this via the GUI - System --> Licensing. 

CAS checks for new engines and pattern files once every 5 minutes.
