Check for Updates
When new malware threats are discovered in the wild they are analyzed by antivirus laboratories and an updated version of the virus signature database released containing the information required to detect these threats.
As threats constantly emerge and antivirus laboratories develop new detection methods there can be frequent virus signature definition database releases.
To ensure your computer is fully protected, Managed Antivirus automatically updates to the latest virus signature on a schedule setup by the network administrator, normally checking for updates every few hours and downloaded a new version when available.
As scanning your computer using an outdated virus signature database may prevent the antivirus module from detecting newly identified malware, we would suggest manually updating the virus signature database before running an on-demand scan.
To update the virus signature database. Click the Actions button in the console's main window, then click Check for updates.
