Update the Attack, Virus, Security and GeoIP Definitions

  • Last updated on

To apply the latest attack, virus, security, and geoIP definitions:

  1. Go to the ADVANCED > Energize Updates page.
  2. Set Automatic Update to On, and then click Save. This enables definition updates whenever updates are available. 

    An attack definition update requires an administrator to reboot the system. An alert message will display in the BASIC > Dashboard page indicating the new attack definition is synchronized, and to apply the definition, the administrator must reboot the system.

    If the system is version 7.9 or above, an attack definition update does not require a system reboot.

  3. Check that the current installed version is the same as the latest version for all definitions.
  4. If the current installed version is not the latest version, click Update to download and install the latest available attack, virus, security, and geoIP definitions.
