Scheduled
The SEP Cloud client for Windows is updated periodically to provide improvements and defect fixes. The next update is scheduled to start on April 1, 2019.

What’s new
In this release, the SEP Cloud client for Windows will be updated to version 22.17 to provide an enhanced protection framework and client stability.

  • The SEP Cloud client for Windows is updated to the latest Visual Studio version 15.7.6.
  • Fixed a stability-related synchronization issue by adding a critical section to protect storage access.
  • Fixed an issue that occurs when the agent submitted to the backend the same event multiple times until a second event from the same source was received.

    Impact
    All Windows devices that are currently enrolled in SEP Cloud will automatically be updated in the background, using LiveUpdate. This update does not affect the security of your devices.

    Action Required
  • Windows device restart
    All users with Windows devices will be prompted to restart their devices after the update. Even if they delay the restart, their Windows clients remain protected.
  • Windows installation package refresh
    Administrators who created a Windows installation package before April 3 should create and distribute a new one after April 3 to use for new Windows package deployments.

    Live Update Schedule:
    Start Date: April 1, 2019 at 09:00 UTC
    End Date: April 1, 2019 at 14:00 UTC

    New Enrollment Schedule:
