Symantec Insight for Private Clouds appliance

Symantec Insight for Private Clouds Endpoint Edition is typically installed in networks without Internet connectivity. The private server stores a copy of Symantec Insight's reputation database in your private cloud. Symantec Endpoint Protection reputation queries are HTTP or HTTPS requests to the private server rather than to Symantec's Insight server.

The private server downloads the Symantec Insight data over an encrypted, secure connection. You can manually update the Insight data or use third-party tools to check for updates and download the data automatically. Your update method depends on your network and the type of server on which you run Symantec Insight for Private Clouds.

When you use a private Insight server, Symantec does not receive any queries or submissions for file reputation.

Good day!

 

 

We have a client pc that the SEP ver 12.1.3001.165 wont install. We used CleanWipe 12 to remove the associated files of the previous SEP version but still when we try to install the SEP 12.1.3001.165 it would appear to initialize and the installation pop-up window appears. But when you check the the Control Panel>Programs and Features list it does not appear to have installed. The client pc is running in Windows 8 64-bit.

 

Thanks in advance.
