As of now it does not scan automatically when inserted; however , whenever you access files to and from the USB, FilesSystem autoprotect will scan it..You are protected with that.

Does Symantec Endpoint Protection or Symantec Antivirus Scan USB flash drives?

in coming releases of endpoint ; this functionality will be implimented

This is available in 12.1 RU2.
It is a host integrity policy so SNAC* needs to be installed to make it work.

*Symantec Network Access Control

Marc, does this means that we will need to install and configure SNAC ?
