Smart Scan Pattern

The Smart Scan Pattern is updated hourly and is downloaded by smart protection sources. Smart scan agents do not download the Smart Scan Pattern. Agents verify potential threats against the Smart Scan Pattern by sending scan queries to smart protection sources.

Smart Scan Agent Pattern

The Smart Scan Agent Pattern is updated daily and is downloaded by the OfficeScan agents’ update source (the OfficeScan server or a custom update source). The update source then deploys the pattern to smart scan agents. The OfficeScan agent uses the Smart Scan Agent Pattern to scan for security risks and only queries the Smart Scan Pattern if the Smart Scan Agent Pattern cannot determine the risk of a file.

 
Agents that are currently in your intranet can connect to a Smart Protection Server to query the Smart Scan Pattern. Network connection is required to connect to the Smart Protection Server. If more than one Smart Protection Server has been set up, administrators can determine the connection priority.
