Security Intelligence Update for Microsoft Defender Antivirus

Is there a way to set up a patch policy or create a worklet that will update the Security Intelligence Update for Microsoft Defender Antivirus for all Windows 10 devices daily? I’m trying to find a way to not have to manually go into software select the OS and then push out the Security Intelligence Update for Microsoft Defender Antivirus that are 1 day old. Thanks in advance for your help.

You can try creating a Patch Only Policy like: Definition Update Policy

  • Filter for:
    • KB2267602 (Security Intelligence Update for Microsoft Defender Antivirus)
    • KB915597
  • Schedule: Daily
  • Notifications are optional. These patches do not require a reboot.

Hope this helps

It would be nice to be able to set a policy to run at a regular interval - in this instance, check every hour or two for the latest signature and apply it.

One workaround is to create copies of the policy to run at different hours. Maybe you don’t want 24 copies, but 3 or 4 throughout the day would make sure that things are fairly up to date.
