Updateable Components

To ensure up-to-date protection against the latest risks, there are several engine and pattern files components you can update.

Pattern files contain the binary "signatures" or patterns of known security risks. Cloud Edge uses them to detect known risks as they pass through the Internet gateway. Some pattern files, for example virus and Smart Scan pattern files, are typically released multiple times per week, while some pattern files, for example, the protocol and IPS pattern files, are updated less frequently.
