Arctic Wolf Agent UpdatesUpdated Feb 12, 2024
Arctic Wolf® Agent automatically checks for updates each hour. If an update is available, Agent downloads the update installer, and then automatically runs it in the background to remove the old application. Updates are pushed to Agents on all endpoints unless you specifically block an update for Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) testing. Updates download over port 443 in the Agent manager binary.
Note: You must allowlist Agent DNS hostnames to allow automatic software updates. In general, you must allowlist firewall, other network configurations, and endpoint security applications that do not block or interfere with Agent operations. In most applications, this means adding network addresses, files or file paths, and processes to an exclusions list or a safe list.
These update options are also available:
- Group Policy Management Console (GPMC) — Use this option if you require more control over when software is updated on your network.
- Non-persistent virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) environment — Use this option for ephemeral instances.
