Currently, SEP does not provide support for wildcards for path exclusions. This is a serious problem when using SEP in a virtualized environment. Specifically, there are user profile folders that need to be excluded on user desktops. The path to this folder on each desktop varies according to the username of the user whose desktop it is. So, being able to exclude paths using wildcards is critical if SEP is to be deployed successfully in a virtualized environment, especially a virtualized Citrix environment. I know of several businesses who have chosen a McAfee AV solution over Symantec due to this key missing feature.
