Developer's description:Antivirus protection is always required, regardless of the type of system one works on, be it a physical or a virtual one. Symantec Endpoint Protection is a software solution developed to secure servers, desktop, laptops and virtual environments against a wide range of threats. A special function of this application is the integrated recovery tool that can be used to generate a self-booting CD or USB stick which includes a suite of Symantec malware removal utilities. Once created, the new CD or USB stick can boot the host infected PC into a virus free state that permits users to remove the detected malware with ease (and retrieve valuable documents in the process). Customers have embraced Symantec Endpoint Protection 12 faster than any previous release. In Symantec Endpoint Protection 12.1.2, we've worked hard to further the Unrivaled Security, Blazing Performance and support for Virtual Environments. By layering technologies like Insight and SONAR, antivirus scans are reduced and maximum performance is achieved while stopping cyber-criminals and even zero-day threats in their tracks

Tuned for Windows 8 performance to make make your OS 80% faster and 29% safer than the native Defender solution, according to testing conducted by PassMark and Av-Test.
Support for Mac OSX 10.8 (Mountain Lion) allows you to protect a multitude of Linux, Windows and Macintosh platforms and version from a single security solution.
Enhanced security features include SONAR monitoring nearly1400, rather than 400, file behaviors.
Improved management through the ability to automatically remove existing security software, find orphaned machines, and more efficiently use group update providers.
Unrivaled Security. Blazing Performance. Built for Virtual Environments.
Symantec Endpoint Protection is built on multiple layers of protection, including Symantec Insight and SONAR both of which provide protection against new and unknown threats. Built for virtual environments, it can integrate with VMware vShield Endpoint for dramatically improved performance. Symantec Endpoint Protection 12.1.2 includes the latest features for improved security, performance and management.
Today’s complicated threat landscape requires sophisticated protection from large-scale malware to the most targeted attacks. Only Symantec uses Insight, with the collective wisdom of 200+ million systems in over 200 countries to identify and create a security rating for every file accessed through the internet. This superior reputation technology is combined with network, behavior, file and repair layers of defense to provide unrivaled security against known, and unknown, threats.
In today’s global business environment, every second counts. Symantec Endpoint Protection 12.1.2 has replaced traditional scanning of every file with scan elimination and deduplication through Virtual Image Exception and Shared Insight Cache, and access to the largest Global Intelligence Network to reduce scan times and provide the fastest performance available. Quite simply, files known to be good can be skipped, causing Endpoint Protection to scan faster and smarter.
