This whitepaper focuses strictly on providing guidance on how to successfully deploy the Symantec Endpoint Protection 12.1 protection stack components to a Citrix VDI Environment. This whitepaper does not cover deploying Symantec Endpoint Protection 12.1 workstations in a non-VDI environment or other more general administration concerns or Citrix server best practices in general; for guidance on these topics, please refer to the relevant product documentation. Note also, to date the content of this document has been validated with the US English versions of Citrix XenServer 5.6, XenDesktop 5.6 and Provisioning Services 6.0 as well as Symantec Endpoint Protection 12.1 RU1 running on Microsoft Windows Server 2008. Symantec Endpoint Protection can function seamlessly in a Citrix VDI environment. Simple policy and configuration changes can increase performance and reliability in that environment.
