Endpoint and Windows 8

Created: 03 Jan 2013 • Updated: 03 Jan 2013 | 5 comments

Hi.

We are using Endpoint 11.0.7101.1056 and I have just upgraded some Windows clients to Windows 8.

What is needed to get Endpoint working on Windows 8. I know I need Endpoint 12, but do I need to upgrade Endpoint server or just the clients?

Yes you need to upgrade SEPM.

SEP 12.1 2 are support windows 8.

What's new in Symantec Endpoint Protection 12.1.2

yes you need to upgrade SEPM, since SEPM 11 cannot manage SEP 11 clients.
latest version of SEP 12.1 i.e RU2 supports windows 8.

How do I know whether my license is valid for 12.1?
