Schedule Scan Configuration

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

With the Schedule Scan option, you can scan all the enrolled devices of Seqrite mSuite at fixed intervals. The scan can be scheduled at the following intervals such as Daily, Weekly, Fortnightly, and Monthly. The schedule scan configuration also provides an option for virus definition database update on Seqrite mSuite Agent only when the device is connected to the Wi-Fi.

If the “Update Virus definition database on Agent app via Wi-Fi only” check box is not selected, then the virus definitions will be updated when the device is connected to the Internet via any network.

By default, Seqrite mSuite checks the Internet connectivity and updates the virus definition database. But the Schedule Scan Configuration provides an option to update the virus definition database on Agent app via Wi-Fi only.

Note: Schedule Scan configuration is applicable only to the Android devices.
