Update mirror

Several ESET security products (ESET PROTECT, ESET Endpoint Antivirus, etc.) allow you to create copies of the update files to update other workstations on the network. The use of a mirror— a copy of the update files in the LAN environment—is convenient because the update files do not need to be downloaded from the vendor update server repeatedly by each workstation. Updates are downloaded to the local mirror server and then distributed to all workstations to avoid the risk of network traffic overload. Updating client workstations from a mirror optimizes network load balance and saves internet connection bandwidth.
