The ability to utilize subordinate update caches to have a distributed update structure internally

The Sophos Central Update Cache equivalent of a Child SUM. This will allow organisations to save internet link bandwidth by allowing Update Caches to pull updates from other caches over LAN/private WAN links.

    Two other benefits shared from the customer for this feature;

    1. It allows us to continue to restrict internet access capability to our local fileservers / domain controllers, therefore further limiting risk of internet facing exposure to malware, intrusion, virus attacks etc. consolidating the risk to a central update point.

    2. If we were to use a cache centrally located within a data centre, this feature will also allow us to protect the bandwidth/performance of our internal MPLS circuits, by only having to download the update once to a local office cache, rather than 100’s of times in the case of our larger locations, if we were to allow our desktops to retrieve the updates from the central cache.

    Many thanks,
    Jonathan
