So how many people are running the beta now?  Anyone using the Reputation-Based Security settings?  Just would like to know how things are going for others.

Also, dumb question, what is Symantec DLP Integration?

I read that somewhere that it can now read SSL packets in the new software?  Can't find where that setting is.
