Hello,

The Symantec Endpoint Protection Security Virtual Appliance is a Linux-based virtual appliance that you install on a VMware ESX/ESXi server. The Security Virtual Appliance integrates with VMware's vShield Endpoint. The Shared Insight Cache runs in the appliance and lets Windows-based Guest Virtual Machines (GVMs) share scan results. Identical files are trusted and therefore skipped across all of the GVMs on the ESX/ESXi host. Shared Insight Cache improves full scan performance by reducing disk I/O and CPU usage.

Note: You must install a Security Virtual Appliance on each ESX/ESXi host if you want the GVMs to access Shared Insight Cache.

The appliance is complete and ready to use as soon as you install it. The appliance includes the Shared Insight Cache.
