Configuring the updating policy

Updating policies enable you to keep your computers up to date with your chosen security software. Sophos Enterprise Console checks for updates and updates computers, if necessary, at a specified interval.

The default updating policy enables you to install and update the software specified in the “Recommended” subscription.

If you want to change the default updating policy or create a new updating policy, follow the instructions in the following topics:

If you use role-based administration:

  • You must have the Policy setting - updating right to configure an updating policy.
  • You cannot edit a policy if it is applied outside your active sub-estate.

For more information about role-based administration, see Managing roles and sub-estates.
