Suggest the next SEP can display SEP scan pop-up for removable media when the removable media attached. It will inform the user SEP is protecting them.

SEP doesn't scan when removable media is inserted. Only auto-protect will catch it if it tries to activate.

Having tried to get this option for the last 3 years - Symantec have responded not to add this in the next release as the explaination given : It takes too long to scan a USB drive (big drives like 1TB) and it results in slowing the machine down. So we have to take it that something has to be "activated" before auto-protect is used. We try to educate the end-user as well to scan every USB stick that is handed to them as our customer (+-50000 machines) have the most infections through USB drives.
