Hi All...

I would like to share my story regarding Symantec Endpoint Protection.  I am from HCL Infosystems Ltd, where I am a Customer Engineer managing a team of five people.  Specifically, I manage SEP deployments for our customers.

This particular customer had an older AV software installed which wasn't providing thorough protectio - a virus outbreak in the network caused many of the machines to go down for extended periods of time.  The customer decided to go with SEP primarily because of its new features.  Specifically, they wanted individual management points in each location, and one central location to manage the entire infrastructure.  Previously, they were not able to bring all clients under one management console due to various difficulties.  The deployment consisted of 49 locations across India, with one server in each location.  Additionally, one server was deployed in Bangalore as the primary server. ...

Last year, we started looking at SEP11. As we're still running on SAV8 for majority of the servers and clients, with a few SAV9 and SAV10, I believe it's about time to start upgrading to the latest version. I checked the features, documentations, forums, blogs, articles and everything about SEP and I'm getting a negative feedback, a lot of people are complaining. Some even call it a nightmare! Very discouraging. I kept on thinking, as the Server Technology Analyst and only 1 year with the company, I don't want to risk my new job as well as mess around with the servers. Is SEP11 ready for primetime, or is it a disaster? SEP11 is September 11, hmmm, a 9/11 disaster! So we didn't rushed to deploy this. Instead, I started working on test servers and clients. At the same time, as I'm the only one who's going to deploy and implement this, I need to have a plan, a very safe one.

I created a project plan, first looking at the existing SSC setup and...

Hi There,

I'm Rafeeq, I work as a security consulant for a client, we handle their entire security infrastructure,including IPS signatures and network monitoring.
My client has around 2000+ computers in their environment. They had a mixed enviroment consisting of SAV 8.x and SAV10 running on two different domains with mixed mode. Their license was about to end for SAV 10 this september , hence they decided to go for an upgrade , client did not have any second thoughts of chosing different antivirus vendors no matter even if it comes for free, the reason they had (i'm sure we all agree to these points :) )

1) The detection rate of symantec is higher than any other antivirus companies i agree to this coz symantec has global sensors all over for this detection

Disk full message erroneously appears when downloading LiveUpdate updates

If your network environment already supports the proxy servers that are compliant with the HTTP 1.1 protocol or later, you can disregard this entry.

After you have tried to download LiveUpdate for the first time, the following message might appear:

"LU1863: Insufficient free disk space
There is not enough free disk space for LiveUpdate to operate properly. Please free up disk space on your computer and run LiveUpdate again."

You might have insufficient disk space. However, it is much more probable that this message appears in error because the proxy server is unable to send the correct Contents-Length header field.

This error message might appear on Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager, a Symantec Endpoint Protection client, or a Symantec Network Access Control client.

You should verify that the disk...

After you configure database maintenance options, the new options are applied at midnight, and not immediately.

To configure the database options:

  1. In the console, click Admin > Servers, and then select a site.
  2. Under Tasks, click Edit Site Properties, and then click the Database tab.

To configure the management server to apply the database maintenance options immediately, you can configure the conf.properties file.

To configure the config.properties file:

  1. Open the conf.properties file, located in the C:\Program Files\Symantec\Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager\tomcat\etc directory by default.
  2. Change the following parameters:
  • Change scm.object.idletime=3600000 (in milliseconds) to a smaller number. The default setting is 1 month.
  • Change scm.timer.objectsweep=900 (in seconds) to a smaller number.The default setting...

Do you need to know open ports on your servers ? Try CurrPorts by Nirsoft , this helpful tool allows to Monitor TCP/IP Network connection on your Windows computers.
No installation needed, just download the exe file from the dowload link and start to scan your target system.

Description:
CurrPorts displays the list of all currently opened TCP/IP and UDP ports on your local computer. For each port in the list, information about the process that opened the port is also displayed, including the process name, full path of the process, version information of the process (product name, file description, and so on), the time that the process was created, and the user that created it.
In addition, CurrPorts allows you to close unwanted TCP connections, kill the process that opened the ports, and save the TCP/UDP ports information to HTML file , XML file, or to tab-delimited text file.
CurrPorts also automatically mark with pink color...

There have been a ton of questions on how to migrate to the new Symantec Endpoint Protection Small Business Edition.
Probably the easiest way to remember this is the following:
CROSSGRADE at RENEWAL.

For current customers on SAV CE, when you are up for renewal, simply use the cross grade sku to get SEP SBE.

Below is a great URL that gives a summary on migration paths as well as price impact:
