Update Agent

In a large organization the Administrator can create computer groups for better management and distribution of Policies and Updates. Using eScan they can install Update agent on any managed endpoint (where eScan Client is already installed). This update Agent will take the signature updates from eScan Corporate Server and distribute the same to other managed computers in the group.

This tab will allow you to add or remove computers as Update Agents. The computers added will act as Update Agents for the other clients in the group. This will reduce the traffic between the eScan Corporate Server and the client. The Update agent will alternatively query eScan Update servers on internet for getting updates whenever there is a connectivity problem between the update agent and eScan Corporate Server.
