Symantec Endpoint Protection

Created: 25 Feb 2013 • Updated: 25 Feb 2013 | 6 comments

When I deploy (PUSH) out the Symantec Endpoint Protection client to my end users, how do I make sure they are getting the most updated virus defintions as opposed to those from 2009?  This would save me time during install.

What version of SEP is this for?

With SEP 12.1, when you push a client it should already be updated if you select "All content"

When you do the push, make sure you select the below option:

General instruction to creating the push deployment packages:

http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH164327

- under content type just select the "All content" - this option will increase the size of the deployment package but will as well include the current defs from SEPM.

This is really helpful!  Thank-you for your assistance.

I am running SEP Small Business Edition 12.0.1001.95.

Based on some of the articles they are to do the upgrade from 12.0 to 12.1.

The auto upgrade feature is not found in the SBE version.

Do I need to be on 12.1 and if so, can I still upgrade?

Upgrade of SEP SBE 12.0 to 12.1 is fully supported:

..but unfortunately the mentioned before option for Autoupgrade is a feature only from SEP Enterprise Edition. In SEP SBE you should be able to use the Client Deployment Wizard for pushing the SEP to clients.
