About best practices for LiveUpdate policy settings

If you maintain strict control over Symantec content and product updates for your clients, you should consider changing your LiveUpdate policy for your remote clients.

For the group of remote users who log on without a VPN, we suggest you change the LiveUpdate Scheduling frequency to one hour. This setting makes it more likely that clients update their protection when they connect to the Internet.

For all other groups, it is a best practice to use the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager to distribute product software and content updates. An update package that is distributed through the management console is incremental rather than a complete package. The update packages are smaller than the packages that are downloaded directly from the Symantec LiveUpdate server.
