■ Mac OS X Server 10.6.8, 10.7 (32-bit, 64-bit); 10.8 (64-bit)

I believe it will as SEP 12.1 works on Core 2008 although it is not specifically mentioned above, just that Server 2008 is supported. So based on that my assumption would be yes that it is supported on Core 2012

All documentation for 12.1.2 is here
