nSIC Across SEP Domains

Hello All,

Just a quick question to begin the year.

Essentially we have a requirement for endpoints that belong to different organisational units will cohabitate the same SEPM. however be administered by different entities. We are looking at multiple SEP domains to keep the OU's separated. The endpoints will invariably be virtualised with an non-determined number of virtual hosts and guests per OU. We though are looking to minimise costs to make this environment hum so are looking to minimise infrastructure deployments.

Can an nSIC be used to service multiple SEP domains or is it tied to a a one-to-one basis? Assuming it can be shared by SEP Domains, what are the risks if any?

Regards,

Dean

you can create multiple domains under SEPM, why do you have SIC configured? SIC is benfit for scanning.

pete_4u2002,

I know multiple domain is possible. I understand that the SIC is not a part of the domain configuration. The question was asking if SIC's can be shared by multiple domains in other words 1 x SIC can be shared by a group of SEP domains, or if they were tied to a distinct domain.

Dean

AFAIK, the nSIC does not differentiate between SEP domains and should work fine for any SEP Clients pointed at it with the right details.

Thankyou SMLatCST that is also my understanding, just wanted to ensure someone else concurs.
