Subscription Services Status and Manual Signatures Updates

The Gateway AntiVirus, Intrusion Prevention Service, Application Control, Data Loss Prevention, Botnet Detection, and Geolocation security services use a frequently-updated set of signatures to identify the latest viruses, threats, and applications. You can configure these services to update signatures automatically. For information about signature update settings see:

You can also update signatures manually. If the signatures on the Firebox are not current, you are not protected from the latest viruses and intrusions.

See Service Status

The Subscription Services status page shows statistics about the subscription services activity, and shows the status of signature updates. For each signature-based service, you can see the current signature version installed and whether a newer version of signatures is available.
