Yea, I was a devoted SEP believer in the past. Now I think we need to consider AV protection from the inside out rather then fron the outside in. Put another way, AV protection should and one day will be, built into a system’s hardware infrastructure. One day soon I hope!
Based on the very article you submitted, I agree. We do need a better mobile endpoint solution. However desktops and laptops do seriously require endpoint protection.
Regarding the SEP Manager: Really heavy, heavy usage. Total drain on system resources and serious performance issues! No thanks!
The Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager is very I/O intensive and subject to random spikes of heavy resource usages in dealing with clients, HTTP traffic and disk I/O transactions. As a result, a minimally designed VMware may suffer performance issues and “fall behind” in logs, requests for content / policies and definitions. With this in mind, Symantec STRONGLY recommends the following settings as a “functional minimum” set of system requirements:
The VMware image should be static in its MAC address and its IP address
The VMware image should not be compressed or use compression in the hosted OS
The VMware image should have access to a full Gigabit network interface card
