About the Symantec AntiVirus client for Linux

You can install Symantec AntiVirus for Linux (SAVFL) in an environment that contains Symantec Endpoint Protection (SEP). The Symantec AntiVirus client for Linux includes real-time antivirus file protection through Auto-Protect scans and file system scans by using manual and scheduled scans.  SAV for Linux clients will be unmanaged by the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager (SEPM) because SAVFL is designed as a stand-alone product, though it is now possible to forward certain logs to the SEPM with the optional "SAVFL Reporter" module.

SAVFL supports the following operating systems:

  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3.0, 4.0, 5.0

  • SuSE Linux Enterprise (server/desktop) 9, 10, 11

  • Novell Open Enterprise Server (OES/OES2)

  • Ubuntu 8, 9, 10

  • Debian 4, 5

  • Fedora 10, 12, 13

You can also install SAVFL onto a virtualized installation of one of the supported operating systems using VMWare ESX 2.5, 3.0, or 3.5.

For information about the system requirements, installation on Linux, and the command-line interface, see the Symantec AntiVirus for Linux Implementation Guide.

For information about using the Symantec AntiVirus client on Linux, see the Symantec AntiVirus for Linux Client Guide.
