Need Antivirus Protection without Internet Connection

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View
I have a computer that is used for processing classified information.
Under our security protocols, we cannot allow this computer to be
connected to the internet, yet we must maintain up-to-date antivirus
software on it. Norton and McAfee both require updates be received
online. Windows Defender requires the operating system be verified
through their Genuine Advantage program.

Is there any mainstream anti-virus program that I can install without
registering it online and still receive updated virus definition files
(e.g. from a CD either direct from the company or downloaded to
another computer)?

Thanks!

You can download virus defs for norton/symantec products from
ftp.symantec.com

For McAfee, you can dl the SDAT and transfer it via USBdevice. You could do the
same with just the
DATs, but the SDAT is in some ways simpler - it's an exe you run instead of some
files you have to
copy to a specific folder - and will include engine updates.

Is this truly a "classified" computer or just a PC processing proprietary
information ?

If this is a PC that is truly processing CLASSIFIED information -- Please email
me by
removing ~nospam~ from my posting address.

BTW:  McAfee and Symantec (enterprise version should be used NOT retail
versions) have EXE
files to update the signatures of their respective AV packages.
