System protection can very much depend on having frequent antivirus software updates. Knowing how often this will occur can affect your decision to use a particular system protection program. NETGATE Internet Security has regular updates to help keep your system protected.

The following updates are options for both components of Internet Security:

  • Automatic database updates
  • News updates

Once installed, the frequency of automatic updates to Internet Security will depend on the updates to the main NETGATE threat database. An alternative is to use manual updates, which is very easy to do.
