Hi Shoaib,

As from the doc shared by Ashish, SIM is not in the list however even If you integrate with SPC, again SPC will contact to internet and get the updates from GIN and bring them to SSIM. However what if the SPC is also not allowed in that environment?

Here I believe you need some work around to download the content on a temporary server and copy it to SSIM. This scenario is followed for CCS VM in case it is meant to remain off line.

GIN requires internet access as it's a realtime feed, SSIM will look for specific GIN data from Symantec once licensed on the appliance.

SPC is a management structure, when we talk about integration with SPC it means we can manage those products via SPC.

 Each of the individual products will still be accesable via their own management console, and for those products that integrate into SSIM, you would still need to place an agent on their server/s in order to feed into SSIM.

I am not aware of SPC feeding anything into SSIM.
