I'm having trouble understanding the update process of windows defender. There are 2 update locations and I don't see what the difference is - or if they are one and the same thing.
1. Windows Security => Virus & threat protection => Protection updates
These updates can be scheduled to download and install using the defender group policy settings.
2. Windows Update
Is always showing a "Security Intelligance-Update" missing/waiting for install (we do not auto-install updates on our servers).
So my questions are:
- Are both of those the same thing? The name suggests this to be the case
- If yes, how can we just use the in-app updater without triggering windows update for the security intelligence updates?
- If no, how can we auto install security intelligence updates without also auto installing all other windows updates?
Thanks in advance
