    Update Privileges

    • Allow users to perform manual updates

    • Use Trend Micro ActiveUpdate as a secondary update source

    • Disable hot fix deployment

      Note:

      Deploying hot fixes, patches, security/critical patches, and service packs to a large number of agents simultaneously can significantly increase network traffic. Consider enabling this option on several groups so you can stagger the deployment.

      Enabling this option also disables automatic build upgrades on agents (for example, from the Beta build to the release build of the current product version) but NOT automatic version upgrades (for example, from version 7.x to the current version). To disable automatic version upgrades, run the Security Server installation package and choose the option for delaying upgrades.

    Client Security

    Prevent users or other processes from modifying Trend Micro program files, registries and processes.
