Hi

Hi ejhardinsysadmin,

Unfortunately the roadmap is not a topic upon which I can comment.  Enhanced capabilities for the SEP for Mac client are coming, but Symantec cannot currently make any promises about how soon they will be released into the product. 

You may wish to cast a vote in favor of the following proposed enhancement request:

Add Firewall to SEP for Mac

With thanks and best regards,
