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 SophosLabs.

SophosLabs 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.
