What you need to consider and optimize when working with low bandwidth locations

How can we configure definition and engine client updates optimally for my bandwidth?

How to do it…

By splitting the jobs into separate rules you can limit the amount of data that needs to be transferred. You need Windows Defender and Windows 10 updates on a daily basis if you have Windows 10 clients. Also, Endpoint Protection Definitions need to run on a daily basis to maintain a secure environment.

However, Endpoint Protection Client Agent updates can be limited to run once a week or even once a month to further reduce traffic. There is no need for these to run several times a day.

Different Automatic Deployment Rules

Remember to checkmark Enable binary differential replication on all the packages to reduce network traffic between sites.
