SonicOS: How to update SonicWall Gateway Anti Spyware Signatures
Updating SonicWall Gateway Anti Spyware Signatures
By default, the SonicWall security appliance running SonicWall Anti-Spyware automatically checks the SonicWall signature servers once an hour.
You can force a check of the SonicWall Anti-Spyware signatures database for updates at any time by clicking the Update button located in the Anti-Spyware Status section.
SonicWall Anti-Spyware signature updates are secured. The SonicWall security appliance must first authenticate itself with a pre-shared secret, created during the SonicWall Distributed Enforcement Architecture licensing registration. The signature request is transported through HTTPS, along with full server certificate verification.
Note: Clicking the Update button checks the SonicWall signature servers and updates all Gateway Anti-Virus, Anti-Spyware and Intrusion Prevention Service signatures.
