Updating databases

Kaspersky Sandbox databases are files with records that make it possible to detect a malicious code and signs of suspicious behavior in scanned objects.

Virus analysts at Kaspersky detect hundreds of new threats daily, create records to identify them, and include them in database updates packages (or update packages). Update packages consist of one or more files containing records to identify threats that were detected since the previous update package was released. We recommend that you regularly receive update packages.

The Kaspersky Sandbox database update package includes databases for the server component of the Kaspersky Sandbox solution and Kaspersky Endpoint Agent application databases.

During the license validity period, you can obtain update packages automatically or update the databases manually.
