The monthly maintenance releases
Every month Sophos releases a 'maintenance release' for versions of Endpoint Security and Control / Sophos Anti-virus.
Note: These monthly maintenance releases are distinct and separate from the frequent updates to the IDE files. IDEs are the files that contain threat identities, and these may be released throughout each day in response to newly discovered threats. For more information on IDEs see article 10350.
