Hi All, 
I’m a Webroot noob and just wanted to grasp how Webroot manages Agent Version lifecycle and how might that effect AV Definition updates.

Apologies if there’s a topic or webpage displaying this info.

I’m administering a site with a spread of Agents, up to and the Management Console I’m looking at gives a nice RAG status spectrum of the Agents, with the coloured in Red...assuming that means it’s out of support?

Is this just a visual indicator to suggest updating or has that version actually expired and at risk of not receiving the latest AV definitions?

Thanks for the quick reply, 
I’m a Business User. 

I did read that AV Updates are managed by the Cloud but wanted the confirmation so appreciate the response.

However as good practice I will ensure the latest Agent is deployed where possible.
