Update Security Agent components manually when Security Agent components are severely out-of-date and whenever there is an outbreak. Security Agent components become severely out-of-date when the Security Agent is unable to update components from the update source for an extended period of time.
In addition to components, Security Agents also receive updated configuration files automatically during manual update. Security Agents need the configuration files to apply new settings. Each time you modify Apex One settings through the web console, the configuration files change.
In addition to initiating manual updates, you can grant users the privilege to run manual updates (also called Update Now on Security Agent endpoints). For details, see Configuring Update Privileges and Other Settings.
