Antivirus program that can run AV updates offline

Helo Experts,

I am managing a low Internet bandwidth environment and need a good solution for downloading AV (Antivirus) updates. Say I have 10 computers on the my LAN.

Does anyone know if there is an Antivirus program available that will:

1. Computer 1 gets its AV updates  from the Internet.
2. Computers 2 through 9 get updated over the LAN from Computer 1.

In other words only one computer goes out to the Internet for updates.

IS there a product available to do this?

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Symantec Endpoint Protection Server Manager does precisely that. In addition, domain connected laptops will look to the Internet when disconnected from your home LAN.

I am sure there are others, but SEP Corporate is a mature and capable product that will do what you want.

Yes and pretty much any good console based product will do the trick.

Almost every commercial AV Package will do what you want, it is just the economies of scale in the price that differs.

I forgot to mention that I do not have active directory implemented on this network. It seems most of the solutions require AD to work well.

Does anyone know of a good product that does not need AD and will perform local updates as described?

Kaspersky will work with workgroups.

I think SEP will work with Workgroups as well.

I will back out then.  We have AD.  I do know that I have it installed on my personal phone and tablet but they both get updates directly from Sophos which is not what you are wanting.
