You should learn both the concepts i.e.. Application learning & System lockdown
The Windows Symantec Endpoint Protection client monitors and collects information about the applications and the services that run on each computer. You can configure the client to collect the information in a list and send the list to the management server. The list of applications and their characteristics is called learned applications.
You can use this information to find out what applications your users run. You can also use the information when you need information about applications in the following areas:
Monitoring applications and services that run on client computers
Setting up system lockdown

Monitoring the applications and services that run on client computers
You can use a query tool to search for the list of applications that the client computers run. You can search on application-based criteria or computer-based criteria. For example, you can find out the version of Internet Explorer that each client computer uses.
See Searching for information about the applications that the computers run.
You can save the results of an application search for review.
See Saving the results of an application search.
Hope that helps!!
