Hi James,

Thanks for a quick reply. However I am a bit confused.

I got to know from this forum that Symantec had plans to bring SEP to Linux.

I guess by this time it should have been available.

Sorry for this.Can you please confirm whether SEP is still not available in Linux ?

A managed "SEP for Linux" client is currently expected in 2014.  (That can of course change.) Until then, continue to use SAVFL.

With thanks and best regards,

Thanks Mick,

That means, till the managed "SEP for Linux" is available, it will be SAVFL , which is unmanaged as far as SEPM is concerned.

Correct- they are unmanaged/self-managed, but it is possible to get some info from the SAV For Linux clients into the SEPM using the optional  SAVFL Reporter.

With thanks and best regards,
