Endpoint proactive threat protection not updating


Does Symantec even use in-house their Endpoint product with their PGP product on Windows XP?Since the fix was to remove the bad update and replace it with one that is able to work with the other products it’s clear Symantec was at fault.



To simplify and exclude all extraneous factors we performed file transfer and network speed test where all VMs are hosted on the same VMware ESXi virtualization hosts (Version ESXi 5.1.0 Build 1117900).In short, their Endpoint product released an update that was incompatible with other software trying to access the XP file system (including Symantec’s own PGP).There now should be low to no risk of a problem because the cause was isolated and removed from the update flow. This incident may prompt some users to consider other vendors, yet Symantec is not the first anti-virus company to release an update that causes a major outage.Innovation, integrity and transparency are hallmarks of our services.

Applies To: Symantec-Endpoint-Protection Version 12.1.6 to 14 Symantec Endpoint Protection, developed by Symantec Corporation, is an antivirus and personal firewall software for centrally managed corporate environments providing security for both servers and workstations.

There must be millions of users of SEP in VMware environment and it is hard to believe that it is a common issue.
