Hi everyone,

In the MMC policy editor, we can specify the signature update settings for clients. Which options should I select for downloading from the server first, but if not available then to download from the internet?

Side questions - if I set to download from the internet will it pull it directly from Malwarebytes and how often does the client check for updates (server or internet)?

Thanks in advance!

The client will check for signature updates every so many hours as you define in that policy option. Smallest interval is 1 hour. We release 6-18 signature updates a day. The best option to use is the download signatures from internet (allows for incremental). That allows for a much smaller database size for each update. Getting sigs from the internet is 3-5kb in size versus pulling from the management server, which is 15-25mb each time.
