Daily Safety Check Defaults

Daily Safety Checks run on the configured hour.

The default times are 06:00 for servers and 10:00 for workstations. This allows workstations to update their antivirus definition files and perform other tasks before running the Checks.

Daily Safety Checks run based on the local time of the computer the Agent is installed on.
