Hello,

Engine versions upgrade are not scheduled but most probably once in a year.

Yes, McAfee will automatically download latest available Engine updates during scheduled Agent Update Task. If engine content checked in update task.

The usual response that is provided is once per year. But as you can see the last engine was 2013 and the one prior was 2009. This will give you an idea.

The update task is found in ePO if managed. In your standalone configuration it will autoupdate through the screen capture that you provided and it's schedule.

Re: McAfee VSE 8.8 P4 Scan Engine Updates?

So as you can see from my screen shot settings, it should also update the Scan Engine versions automatically?

It sure will. The standalone version of VSE8.8 is self-supporting right out of the box even if you make no changes.

So just to confirm this.

According from my print screen image which I posted above, those settings should update the Scan Engine versions automatically on an UNMANAGED setting or do I have to download them manually from McAfee's download page?

Many thanks for the support!
