I understand "rtvscan.exe" to be the main process of Symantec's threat protection products (SAV, SEP).

Is "rtvscan.exe" a component of SEP 12.x?  I don't remember seeing it running lately on my PC or other PC's running 12.x.  In fact, the only process I see in my task list relating to Symantec is smc.exe.

Has "rtvscan.exe" been superseeded by another file name / service since the inception of SEP 12.x's SONAR?

rtvscan does not exists in SEP 12.1. It has been removed and replaced and is gone for good.
