Symantec Endpoint Protection 12.1 Virtualization Best Practices
Here is the PDF for Symantec Endpoint Protection 12.1 Best Practices in a Virtual Environment:
The document is intended to capture the complete set of best practices for installation and configuration of Symantec Endpoint Protection version 12.1 in a virtual environment.
Optimized for performance on virtual systems, Symantec Endpoint Protection 12 can automatically identify and manage virtual machines (VMs). Symantec Endpoint Protection 12 also integrates directly with VMware’s security APIs to scan for malware inside offline VMware images. To alleviate concurrent scans, known as ‘AV Storms,’ from impacting performance in dense virtual environments, Symantec Endpoint Protection 12 whitelists baseline VM images and shares scan results across VMs so that identical files only need to be scanned once across an entire pool. When combined with the scanning elimination from Insight, Symantec Endpoint Protection 12 enables faster, more responsive host systems, which in turn supports greater density of virtual instances, particularly for highly consolidated VDI environments.
