Hello!

Indeed a very helpful and informative article and a great comparison to Swiss cheese!

https://blog.emsisoft.com/en/38186/how-we-use-the-swiss-cheese-model-to-prevent-malware-infections/

 

I have a question: it is said that Emsisoft's malicious host databases are updated every 15 minutes.

Why is it impossible to select a database update interval of 15 minutes in the application itself? Minimum -30?

Or is there no point in such a frequent update?

There wouldn't be a noteworthy increase in protection by reducing the time limits between updates, however it would increase load on the update servers with more frequent connections.
