Only installing SEP Core or unistalling SEP completely seem to be the only solution.This seems to be a much bigger trade off between Security and Network Speed than anticipated.SEP must: The University has provided a Self Service tool through which you can log your own tickets (jobs).You can also search for a previously logged ticket to check it's status.Traditional signature and heuristic file scanning engines form the backbone of Symantec’s security solutions; these engines use dozens of techniques to scan files for both known as well as unknown threats.Technologies designed to block attacks just as they transition from the network cable or wireless network to the computer, before they have a chance to establish residency in a physical file on a user’s computer. Behavioral-based protection technology observes actively running threats on your computer and can terminate running programs if they exhibit malicious behaviors; this technology provides proactive protection from entirely new, previously unseen attacks. action does the following: The file is moved to a special quarantine folder. It doesn’t prevent malicious programs from infiltrating into a network between scanning sessions.Furthermore, once moved, the file loses its extension. is used to scan individual PCs and can fulfil needs of small companies. allows performing scanning remotely over a network in the background so that a user can remain unaware of it. is designed for regular scanning but not to provide resident protection. for regular scans of your local network hosts if they are not protected by any other anti-virus, or if you suspect that the installed product doesn't detect some viruses. You do not need to configure rules manually if the firewall is operating in the training mode — it is easier to configure access for each application right from the firewall notification window when it attempts to connect to the network for the first time. Web package that includes the firewall, you will be prompted to deactivate the Windows firewall.
Centrally provided virus protection software (Symantec Endpoint Protection) is made freely available to all staff.The protections apply to the specific applications that are listed in the Intrusion Prevention policy.SEP downloads the application list as part of its Live Update content.For urgent jobs you can phone the ITS Service Desk: ext 4008 (838 4008) for support.
The following general best practices document for configuring and managing SEP 11.0 was prepared by the Symantec product team, and provided by Eric Holst, Senior Systems Engineer, Symantec Corporation.
We already had the power setting to high performance so the solution did not help our case.
