The Mc Afee Agent makes regular connections to one of the VUB’s central servers to check if there are any updates.
This includes the virus signature updates, but also updates to the Mc Afee Endpoint Security software.
In the Mc Afee Endpoint Security console, click on the dropdown symbol (to the right of Scan System and Update Now) and choose About.
Anti-virus signature files are updated almost daily by anti-virus software vendors.
Endpoint Security detects when your system is ‘idle’ to ensure the scans don’t run when your system is already under heavy load.
