    Push Security Tools Update to all workstations in the same network

    by curiousgal22 ·

    Is there a way to push updates for security tools like antivirus, FireEye and DLP through a server or any other way to all workstations in the same network? Because for now, everything is done manually on every computer.

    Do appreciate all suggestions and help.

      Microsoft has a lot of such tools in it’s Windows Server OS. that has a central place in the network, running an Active Directory also.
      So please tell more about your network.

        Hi, thanks for the response. Actually, we do have a wsus server that can push the Windows Update to all the PCs in the same office network because all PCs in the network are not connected to the Internet. Plus all PCs are in the AD too. Can it be used to update other security tools as well?

      Didn’t FireEye take so much damage to it’s reputation that it had to change

      For a cyber defense company to be so badly hacked are we sure we can trust them now?

      -> Now that you have revealed your company uses Windows Server and everyone logs in to that your next stop/call is to Mandiant to find their document on deployment via Windows Server.

      However if the company does not log in with Windows Server then you can not deploy it with a push system as you don’t control those logins.

        Thanks for your input. I’ll try to see if the update can be pushed through WIndows Server. But if not, I’ll be open to see if there is another helper software or tool that can do the job too

          No other tool is required.

          If a company is using Windows Server as intended then there are login scripts etc.

          Have you taken the usual Windows Server Administration courses?

          Why I ask is that the question almost always comes from folk that dismissed taking the course.

          -> But more importantly, if folk do not log into Windows Server you are stuck with manual installs. WHY? Because you don’t have control over the login or update process.

          I was asking this because I’m still relatively new to this and have yet to take any related courses though I will be soon. I am from a software development-based background so this is not too familiar to me and I started here not too long ago.

          I guess I will be more equipped to handle this once I took the required courses. I will look into the controls over logins and updates with the main IT team from the headquarters of the company I’m in since I’m located at one of the foreign branches. Anyway, thanks for the response.
