The SIC server works with Symantec Endpoint Protection (SEP) 12.1 clients, especially in virtualized environments, to improve on-demand scan performance. SEP clients can be configured to request information on unknown files and submit information on known files to/from the SIC. The SEP client performs these lookups during all scheduled and on-demand scans. This allows the the client to substitute a small amount of network traffic for a larger amount of disk I/O by not scanning files another SEP client has already scanned and determiend to be safe.
