OfficeScan Agent Updates

To ensure that agents stay protected from the latest security risks, update agent components regularly.

Before updating agents, check if their update source (OfficeScan server or a custom update source) has the latest components. For information on how to update the OfficeScan server, see OfficeScan Server Updates.

The following table lists all components that update sources deploy to agents and the components in use when using a particular scan method.
