Step 3: Starting Outbreak Prevention Mode

Start Outbreak Prevention Mode to apply the policy that corresponds to the virus outbreak. After Control Manager has entered Outbreak Prevention Mode, you can evaluate product-setting recommendations from Trend Micro and modify them to suit your network. Policies implement product settings that block known virus-entry points.

When TrendLabs deploys an Outbreak Prevention Policy, it is very likely that they are still testing the appropriate virus pattern. The Outbreak Prevention Policy settings, therefore allow you to protect your network during the critical period before TrendLabs releases a new pattern.

Before you start Outbreak Prevention Mode, set outbreak recipients and the notification method in the Event Center.
