Symantec Endpoint Protection defends businesses from both malware and targeted attacks—protecting against new and unknown threats.Symantec Endpoint Protection uses Symantec’s Insight platform to collect and collate data from over 200 million systems in 200-plus countries.It uses this data to identify and create a security rating for every file accessed through the Internet.As a result, it stops targeted attacks and advanced, persistent threats with a degree of protection that far exceeds the capacities of traditional anti-virus.
We use Microsoft Windows exclusively, so this pertains to Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2012 R2 for server operating systems.It is annoying to have to install the SEP client on every single machine that you want to have protected.The Symantec hybrid approach means that the same exact version of a file won't be repeatedly scanned, but it doesn't really make up for having to have the client installed on every single VM you want to protect.Client Guide for Symantec Endpoint Protection and Symantec Network Access Control The software described in this book is furnished under a license agreement and may be used only in accordance with the terms of the agreement.
