Auto Update

Automatically adjust Trust Levels and enforce security policies based on whether specific files are on a device

  • Updated on May 21, 2024

Auto Update Overview

Auto Update assesses whether devices are automatically installing new versions of their operating systems. Devices satisfy this Trust Factor only if updates are automatically installed; auto-checking for updates will not satisfy this Trust Factor.

How to add Auto Update as a Trust Factor

  1. In the Command Center, navigate from Trust > Profiles.

  2. Either select an existing Trust Profile or create a new one.

  3. Under the Trust Factors tab, select + Add Trust Factors if creating a new Trust Profile; select Edit and then +Add Trust Factors if adding new Trust Factors to an existing Trust Profile. Select Auto Update.

  4. Set the Trust Effect.
