Intercept X - core agent updates

Hello everyone,

is it usual, that Core Agent Version doesn´t change on the devices? All of our devices are still on 2022.4.3.1. I always thought Intercept X updates itself completely automatic.

Screenshots of the "Agent Summary" in sophos central:

  • Core Agent means the System to build the foundation of the endpoint, it has no implications towards the security modules. 

    What that means: If you uninstall the protection in Central, the core agent stays on the system with no security modules anymore. It is solely to get new modules, updates of intercept X for example or install new products. (Communication to Central in general). 

    So it does not need to be updated or anything.

  • But shouldn´t it be better to update the components of the core version? If i saw it correctly, the version of components like file scanner, Network Threat Protection and more is depending on the core version?

    And is there a certain lifetime for each core version?
