Does Sandblast Endpoint agent provide offline update for anti-virus blade?

Jump to solution

Hi,

It looks like the anti-virus signatures or other information are only updated through the Internet. I am wondering if a laptop disconnect from the internet for a couple days and the laptop received a unknown malware from a USB. How sandblast agent provide the security?

Let me know if the sandblast agent can be updated by other means. Thank you.

The answer is somewhat provided in the question itself, any solution relying solely on signatures alone will provide inferior levels of protection against unknown malwares, SBA isn't one such solution.

Distributed Endpoint Policy Servers, Offline Updates  and Private ThreatCloud deployments are some options that will aid in ensuring that Endpoints otherwise receive the necessary updates and Threat Intelligence desired in connectivity limited situations to complement the in-built Forensic capabilities and more!

Back to my question:

You mentioned the endpoint agent can be updated by endpoint servers, offline updates, and Threat Intelligence. Can you please give me a little bit more detailed answer related to my question above? Thank you. I do appreciate any help you provide!
