Hi,

 

i'm refering to this thread:

 

http://community.f-secure.com/t5/Business/F-Secure-Client-Security-11/td-p/28794/highlight/true

 

Am i the only one who think that this is a quite bad solution that every client downloads the updates by themself ? It would be much better when the PM download the packages and push it to the clients.

 

A Technican of F-Secure told me a Year ago that they work on this case but nothing new till now....

 

any Updates ?

    Hello primavera,

     

    Unfortunately we don't have any plans currently in that direction.

    The only workaround to minimize the traffic is web proxies cache.

     

    Best regards,

    I don't know what's the problem to implement this feature ?

    It would be, not only for me, when i read the posts a big one because we don't have that big Internet Connection here.

    I can't understand why you don't wan't to implement such an easy thing.....

    Hello,

     

    > I don't know what's the problem to implement this feature?

     

    Copyright, maybe. The patches for 3rd party software are not made by F-Secure Corp. and maybe the makers of those software could sue F-Secure, if the PM acted as a man-in-the-middle for patch delivery?
