Virus definition Offline Update

We are deploying quite a number of Android devices for an organsiation which have the policy of not allowing the mobile devices to connect to the Internet.

Is there a way to update the virus definition of each individual device without any internet connection. For example, are we able to  download the virus definition file on to a desktop and do a USB file transfer to these andriod devices and update the virus definition accordingly on each android device?

Re: Virus definition Offline Update

Hi limkc and Welcome to the Norton Community.

As far as i know it is not possible to update the virus definitions etc for the Norton Mobile

Security app using web downloads to a PC as they do not seem to exist.

From what i found in a Norton web page associated with this question the only way to do

these sort of updates is by using the LiveUpdate option in the Norton Mobile Security

settings within the app it's self.

More info from the link below -

I hope that info helps to answer your question.

Cheers.

Re: Virus definition Offline Update

Hi limkc.

I have no problems with smithy's post but I am left puzzling about why you want the updates if you are never connected to anything?  And where would you get Norton Mobile Security (NMS) or Norton Security antivirus as it is currently called in Google Play, from in the first place?

As far as I am aware, the main threat to Android devices, comes from dodgy apps.  So the advice is normally to ensure you only download from reputable sources, such as Google Play, and have anti-malware software to keep an eye on the apps as they download and as more is known (the live update issue).  If you are never going to connect to anything why would you need anti-malware app?  But then why would you need an Android device as apparently you are not going to allow any apps to be loaded on it?

Personally I don't see how your company is going to enforce a no-connection policy, and having it may encourage some people to go in by a backdoor route which in itself would be more risky.

So in summary I think smithy has given a good answer to the question of how you might get the live updates.  But I think you need to carefully consider what you are trying to do in the first place.

I hope that helps.  If you have any further questions please feel free to come back.

Good luck.
