Email Appliance Updates

New threats are constantly evolving on the internet: new viruses, new strategies devised by spam senders, and other novel security attacks. To ensure that your Email Appliance is able to deal with these changes, a built-in update mechanism downloads and installs updated information from Sophos Labs.

Sophos Labs sites around the world provide rapid response to evolving threats like viruses, spam, phishing, spyware and other malware, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

The Email Appliance constantly updates anti-virus and anti-spam definitions. It also downloads "Critical" and "Maintenance" software updates on a configurable schedule. Critical updates are security-related and protect against anything that can compromise the Email Appliance. Maintenance updates contain the latest non-critical software updates and bug-fixes.
