SEPM 12 and Protection Center

Created: 22 Aug 2011 | 7 comments

I am correct to assume the Protection Center 2.0 and SEPM 12 are 2 seperate products?

That is can I deploy (upgrade) from SEPM 11 to 12 now and then install Protection Center 2.0 later?

SPC can be accessed by going to http://<yoursepmserverip>:9090/ and launch it. There is no install needed.

You're explaining the SEP/ SPC way and not the stand-alone SPC v2

Hello,

SPC 2.0 (Symantec Protection Center 2.0) is basically a Dashboard. I would not term it as a New Product, I would call it as a Upgraded DashBoard from Symantec Protection Center 1.0

Symantec Protection Center is a centralized security management console that allows organizations to identify emerging threats, prioritize tasks and accelerate time to protection based on relevant, actionable intelligence. 

Symantec customers with active subscription status of integrated Symantec products will be entitled to Symantec Protection Center 2.0 and support for free.

This can be start the Symantec Protection Center 2.0 by:

https://SPC Ip Address/Symantec/ProtectionCenter

Hope that helps!!

Helli,

Protection Center lets you manage Symantec Endpoint Protection together with other Symantec products in a single environment. Symantec Endpoint Protection is integrated with Protection Center by means of a series of Web services. These Web services provide communication between the Symantec Endpoint Protection  Manager server and the Protection Center server.

Check out the below link for more information ,

SPC that ships with SEPM is not the same thing as SPC 2.0. SPC 2.0 is a standalone product which allows you to integrate consoles from different Symantec products as well as create reports and correlate data. 3rd parties can also plugin to SPC 2.0 by signing up for the STEP program.

Hi Harold,

A lot of good advice above.....

There have been several SPC versions, all of which are quite different things.  Don't get confused!

  • SEP Small Business Edition 12.0 had a "SPC" rather than a SEPM. 
  • SEP 11 had a web link to launch a basic SPC 1.0.
  • SPC 2.0 is a completely new centralized security management console that allows organizations to identify emerging threats, prioritize tasks and accelerate time to protection based on relevant, actionable intelligence.  It is for large organizations with Symantec products defending various points in their network infrastructure. 

Some additional info:

Symantec customers with active subscription status of integrated Symantec products are entitled to Symantec Protection Center 2.0 and support for free.

There is a SPC 2.0 community here on the Connect Forums.

Hope this helps!

With thanks and best regards,

...SPC 2.0 is separate from the SEPM, and installs to its own box running Windows 2008 Core.  You can happily upgrade your SEPM to 12.1, and leave thinking about SPC2.0 until a later date.

I'd would highly reccommend reading through all the info provided in the earlier posts if you're interested in setting up SPC2.0.
