Some anti-malware companies check Microsoft Windows Updates. That means applying the update across all combinations of Microsoft Windows in all service pack levels, editions, and languages that they support, in combination with all of their products. This might be one or two thousand different configurations, so it's usually the sort of thing that's done headless in a server lab running all those configurations as VMs, although it could involve native hardware if there were a specific reason to do so (e.g., a strategic partnership between the anti-malware company and a device manufacturer for some kind of turnkey solution).
