Specifying how Symantec Endpoint Protection handles an application that scans detect or that users download

You can force Symantec Endpoint Protection to detect a particular application. When Symantec Endpoint Protection detects the application and the management console receives the event, the application appears in the application list. The application list appears empty if the client computers in your network have not yet made any detections.

The applications list includes any detections that are made by virus and spyware scans, SONAR, application learning, or Tamper Protection. It also includes any detections that are made by Download Insight.
