To be able to get firmware and license updates, the management interface of Threat Defender has to be able to reach our servers via the Internet. If you do not want to connect Threat Defender to the Internet, you need to update it manually (see Updates).
If Threat Defender is not updated for 180 days, it will no longer allow traffic to pass.
