Can I configure the VirusScan Updates to Behave different inside and outside the company?

Jump to solution

Hello Guys,

Our customer is asking us if there is a way to configure the VirusScan updates to behave different inside and outside the company.

Nowadays, our customer have about 1000 laptops in its environment, when the laptops are inside the company they are updated from an internal server, however when they are outside the company, they aren't updated at all.

Actually, I did not find where this is configured using ePO, however I've already created a rule where the devices that are out of the company are tagged.

I think that I can create a Policy Assignment Rule that identifies if the laptop is outside the company and then make updates directly from the Internet.

Basically, what I need is to update the laptops outside the company, however if they are inside the company again, they must be updated using the internal repository.

Anyone can give me a light about it?

Thank you very much!

Paulo Poi

That would be in the "McAfee Agent -> Repository" policy

Normally the policy is already configured to have the McAfeeHttp repository as the last option (Fallback) in the repository list.

So unless you've changed it you should be already configured

If you are referring to only DAT updates you can satisfy both needs with one policy that has your internal DR's set as primary and McAfee HTTP set as fallback server.  This way when they are on property they pull from internal, and when out they are off property they cannot hit the internal and will fallback to mcafee http.

Unless you are referring to product updates, that is different.

Please, can you give me a hint to where to find it?
