About Symantec Endpoint Protection and Protection Center

Protection Center lets you manage Symantec Endpoint Protection together with other Symantec products in a single environment. Symantec Endpoint Protection is integrated with Protection Center by means of a series of Web services. These Web services provide communication between the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager server and the Protection Center server.

You can perform the following tasks in Protection Center:

  • Run the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager console from Protection Center together with other Symantec product consoles.

    The Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager console in Protection Center is almost identical to the standalone console. The main function options that appear to the left of the console window in the standalone version, however, appear at the top in Protection Center.

  • Run the reports that contain data from Symantec Endpoint Protection and from other products, such as Symantec Messaging Gateway.

    The data feed Web services define the Symantec Endpoint Protection data that is written to the Protection Center database.

    For more information, see the Symantec Endpoint Protection Data for Protection Center Reference Guide, which is available from Symantec Technical Support.

  • Initiate the Protection Center workflows that include Symantec Endpoint Protection tasks. Protection Center provides the following Symantec Endpoint Protection workflows:

    • Quarantine Endpoint Workflow

    • Move Endpoint Workflow

    • Update Virus Definitions on Endpoint Workflow

    • Update Virus Definitions and Scan Endpoint Workflow

Other products may provide different tasks, or sets of integration points. For more information about how products can integrate with Protection Center, see the Protection Center documentation.
