Recommendation

DDI uses a number of patterns to detect virus, malware, and network threats, etc. For instance, Deep Discovery Malware Pattern (Virus Pattern) is updated at least once daily while other pattern files might have different schedules.. In addition, patterns can be also be released on critical emergency situations caused by new threats. Therefore, Trend Micro recommends:

  • Configuring scheduled updates and setting the update schedule to every two hours to ensure that the DDI components are up-to-date.
  • Enabling Retry unsuccessful updates and specifying the  Number of retry attempts and Retry interval if the update fails due to heavy traffic or unreliable connections are experienced.

Configuration

Users can check the current and latest versions used by DDI via Administration > Updates on the management console.
