Hello,

In your case, you may require not more than 1 SIC server.

The SIC server works with Symantec Endpoint Protection (SEP) 12.1 clients, especially in virtualized environments, to improve on-demand scan performance. SEP clients can be configured to request information on unknown files and submit information on known files to/from the SIC. The SEP client performs these lookups during all scheduled and on-demand scans. This allows the the client to substitute a small amount of network traffic for a larger amount of disk I/O by not scanning files another SEP client has already scanned and determiend to be safe.

I would suggest you to check these Articles:

Is there a sizing tool available for SIC? Is there any numbers mentioned in the documents?

best practises suggest that SIC servers should be placed within the same LAN as that of Virtual machines.
