SEP agent is so smart to captured malware, now time is come to act smartly to perform some own work like definition update. SEPM server is keeping all information from same subnet which system is up to date, so pass same information to non-update system from same group/subnet and issue a command to take update from nearest updated systems.

This smartness will help in following scenario

1.       When system formatted and engineer loaded SEP agent. SEP agent will report to SEPM server and SEPM server issue a command to take latest update from nearest update system. Result will be no traffic on WAN bandwidth

2.       100 % definition compliance

3.       There will be minimal load on bandwidth in case is none of system having latest definition. 

Thanks & Regards,
