    Default Antivirus without the Internet

    Hi,

    I have a laptop computer that is used for storage of classified information. We use it as a standalone computer for doing any classified work with the government. We cannot connect it to the internet because of NISPOM requirements for standalone computers, but yet we must keep the antivirus software up to date. So far, I haven't been able to find ANY company that allows us to install the software without connecting to the internet somewhere in the process (whether it's to register the product or to keep the virus definitions up to date).

    Is there anything out there? There must be other companies that have this same issue...I just don't know how they've resolved it.

    Thanks for any help at all.

    Hi
    as far as ZA products are concerned, they cannot be updated offline.
    I don't know about the other products. The best would be to contact them directly.

    Here we deal only with ZA products (home oriented) so we can't suggest you other products in particular.

    Probably you could check at checkpoint site for business solutions:

    Thanks for the quick response. I've already checked with Norton and McAfee, but they don't offer a solution either. But I'll check out the link you provided.
    Thanks again!

    actually on norton you can update virus defs offline as long as the program has been activated to do this go to this site http://www.symantec.com/business/sec...efinitions.jsp click on "Download Virus Definitions (Intelligent Updater Only)" and install (making sure to match the product being used) hope this helps if your subscription is expired pm me and i can guide you through
    thanks robdog
