Learn more about why you should maintain current definitions and how Symantec Messaging Gateway updates definitions.
Symantec Messaging Gateway relies on up-to-date information to detect viruses and threats. One of the most common reasons that problems occur is that virus definition files are not up-to-date. Symantec regularly supplies the updated virus definition files that contain the necessary information about all newly discovered viruses and threats. Regular updates of that information maximize security and guard your organization against infections and the downtime that is associated with an outbreak.
Schedule automatic updates to ensure that you are continually protected.
When you schedule automatic virus definition updates, you ensure that you obtain the most current definitions available from Symantec. You can specify how often you want Symantec Messaging Gateway to attempt to obtain virus definitions.
You can only schedule automatic updates through LiveUpdate. Rapid Response does not support scheduled updates.
