Additional Information

  • Downloading the AV Signature Pack does not enable the AV Scanner and is not a required part of the installation process
    • Installed Windows Sensors will normally begin polling for and installing updates based on Policy settings on the Local Scan tab
  • The signature pack is a pre-bundled version of what the sensor initially downloads
    • Newer updates will then be downloaded sensor-side
  • The downloadable AV Signature Pack is not regularly updated, and has historically not been updated unless our 3rd party vendor has required it
