Automatic Signature Updates VS Manual Signature Updates

Is it a best practice to play on the safe side and download signatures manually every now and then? Or should I just set it so everything is done automatically?


I'm on the automatic side because it reduces the possibility of human error on the admin's part and i think it provides better defense against newly discovered attacks.


But then again, i haven't had any trainning on this so i would like to read some opinions.


This is the scenario:

  • 2 M3050 in HA on main site
  • 1 I2700 on some kind of a "warm site/alternate site" hybrid


Thanks in advance.
