Hi All,

What is the type of supported feature for the newly released SEP 12.1.4 ?

In the release notes documentation I have seen that it is Supports the use of ESXi 5.1 Update 1 with vShield Endpoint 5.1

It refers to the appliance based implementation of Shared Insight Cache. The links posted above will be helpful.

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.
