Updating Policy

The Updating policy lets you specify when product updates become available on your network. This ensures that your computers don’t start updating until a time that suits you.

Restriction You can only set this policy as a "Device" policy. You can't set it for users.
Note If an option is locked global settings have been applied by your partner.

Go to Endpoint Protection > Policies to control when your computers update.

To set up a policy, do as follows:

  • Create an Update Management policy.
  • Open the policy's Settings tab and configure the policy as described below. Make sure the policy is turned on.

Scheduled Updates

Enable Scheduled Updates and select the day and time when you want product updates to become available. The time is local to each computer. For example, if you select 9 pm, each computer will get the update at 9 pm local time for the computer. This means that computers in different time zones will not get the update concurrently.

Remember that if computers aren’t on, they won't get the update until they are next on at the scheduled update time.
