My name is Andrew Lasser. I’m a Channel Systems Engineer at FireEye. Keeping track of security content and guest image updates across your entire email and network security infrastructure could seem overwhelming. I’d like to show you a quick and easy way to check for updates within the CLI. First we’re logged into the CLI here we need to go into the enable menu. Typing “en”. First we’re going to check the guest images so we’ll type “show ?” to see the list of options. We’ll type in “guest images ?”.

And then enter. We have a list of current guest images that are installed and it shows they were installed on 7/25. Next we’re just going to tab up and now enter in “available ? defaults”.

Enter. This will show you the current guest images available to download. You can now cross-reference this with your current install guest images to validate if they’re updated or not. Next we’ll check security content updates. So we’ll first type “show ?”. In this case we’re going to type “fenet ? security content ? version”. This will show us the current security content updates that are installed which are 744.168 Now we’re going to tab back up. And type “status”. You can see at the bottom security content updates were last checked on 8/8 and were last applied on 8/8. And that’s how you can easily validate security content and guest image updates. Check back for more tips and insights.
