Another important factor in the effectiveness of an antivirus solution is the frequency that updates are released for download to the antivirus databases on users’ computers. If the proactive mechanism fails to detect a new threat, the user remains vulnerable until they receive an antivirus database updated with a signature for it. Consequently, a higher frequency of updates means a smaller window of vulnerability for users.
Kaspersky Lab releases database updates every hour. The company bolsters protection during virus epidemics by releasing additional emergency updates, which are available for release within 15 minutes of Kaspersky Lab receiving a sample of the malicious program. Information on the latest update releases is available in real time at http://www.kaspersky.../viruswatchlite.

The AV-Test.org team compiled figures on the number of updates that were released by each antivirus vendor in March 2006.
