Juniper is continually updating our JATP threat intelligence and software to provide our customers with the best malware detection in the industry. 

There are several types of updates that are provided to the JATP SmartCore system several times a day. 

While the size of each update can vary, below are the approximate sizes of various JATP Updates:


1. Static Content Updates

2. Fast Content updates (CnC rules, etc.)

- Approximately every 6 hours =  ~10 Mb


3. Software Update (System software update)
