Requirements for an efficient update strategy
An efficient updating strategy generally requires at least one client or server in your organization to retrieve updates from the McAfee download site. From there, the files can be replicated throughout your organization, providing access for all other computers. Ideally, you should minimize the amount of data transferred across your network by automating the process of copying the updated files to your share sites.
The main factors to consider for efficient updating are the number of clients and the number of sites. You might also consider the number of systems at each remote site and how remote sites access the Internet. The basic concepts of using a central repository to retrieve updates and scheduling update tasks to keep your environment up-to-date apply to any size organization.
