Basic Content=Full Content - Definition files

This issue has been solved. See solution.

Can I simply think Basic Content=Full Content - Definition files ?

After SEP client with basic content run live update at first installation, then it becomes full content?

Am I correct?

Hi,

There are total three features to install i.e Virus & Spyware protection, Proactive Threat Protection & Network Threat Protection.

Basic protection will install only Virus & Spyware protection feature .

Full protection will install Virus & Spyware, Proactive Threat Protection (PTP) & Network Threat Protection (NTP) features.

When we talk about conents deployment then yes while deploying as a basic content it will provides basic protection and creates a smaller client deplyment package. Virus definitions and other content are downloaded via Liveupdate after installation

Screenshot is attached to the reference.

HI SymQNA,

Yes you are right. Basic content as per description: "...provides basic protection and creates a smaller client deployment package. Virus definitions and other content are downloaded via Liveupdate after client installation"

...so with this you will get only the client installer with not content definitions = smaller size of installer.

After installation SEP client will run liveupdate and download the latest definitions - this way you will get full content and fully functional client.

Please have a look at this KB as well:

Full will include AV/AS, PTP and NTP

Basic will provide AV/AS.

if you are talking about the basic content then yes it is minus defintion
