Software Updater and bandwidth

DiAmi W/ Alumni Posts: 31 Junior Protector


We use F-Secure and problem have with Software Updater on our remote location where is limited internection connection. We do not use any WSUS therefore the F-Secure Updater downloads and all Windows Updates. I installed proxy on remote location so all hosts there are connected to proxy and get all GUP updates from there. The problem is that the F-Secure Updater is still use direct internet connection and due to update time the network bandwidth is full.  So is there possible to configure computer protection clients to get all windows updates from the F-Secure proxy?

    Hello @DiAmi 


    At the moment, the F-secure Endpoint poxy has the capabiltiy to get the proxy caches GUTS2 updates, meaning the malware signature database only, and not possible to get all windows updates for computer protection.

    Wouldn't it be possible to install an "F-Secure Policy Manager Server 14.01" with empty (policy) settings and set that as a PSB proxy, for both anti-virus signatures and the Software Updater patch repository?
