Avira Update Manager
As its name suggests, Avira Update Manager is designed to provide you with an easier and more convenient method for getting the latest version of Avira products installed on one or more computers in your network.
The package includes two different components, Avira Update Manager Server and Avira Update Manager Frontend. With the help of the server side application, network computers can download product updates via Intranet, without having to do this operation manually.
The Frontend application is a centralized control and configuration utility for all the running servers. It communicates with the Avira Update Manager Service using user-defined command and notification ports. Also, you can specify a login password, in order to prevent unauthorized access to the server.
Update search scheduling options are also available and you can set the application to scan for updates monthly, weekly, daily, hourly or even once every few minutes.
Avira Update Manager Frontend features a simple and clean interface, where you can manage all the active services. From here, you can configure each server to download the required product updates and access the Intranet. You can either use the integrated HTTP server or change the preset download server by entering your own list.
Proxy usage, email notifications and secure authentication are other advantages that this application comes with. Also, you can edit the product list to be updated on each server.
For efficient communication with the servers, you have to run the application with administrative rights and configure it as a firewall exception.
Avira Update Manager automates the updating process of Avira products. Much of the configuration process is done during installation, which makes it a viable alternative for ensuring that you have the latest versions of Avira applications at all times.
