In SEP 11.x you can block autorun.inf through multiple way with the help of following articles.

Preventing a virus from using the AutoRun feature to spread itself

Preventing viruses using "autorun.inf" from spreading with "Application and Device Control" policies in Symantec Endpoint Protection (SEP) 11.x

Microsoft KB articles to disable Autorun

From SEP 12.1 onwards, SEPM will block autorun.inf by default. It's a part of Application & device control policy.

I hope it will help you !!!
