SEPC is a rockstar IMO. Still torn between it and SHP.

SEPC feels a bit lighter, and the firewall on maximum settings is REALLY STRONG. I value Symantec's corporate offerings, they're very good IMO. (unlike their consumer junk) I still can't accept a final decision on which one, considering both are free right now.

from what i read here and various feedbacks, SEPC looks like a simplified version of the classic SEP; seems the SRP module is absent.

@Der.Reisende about the https://malwaretips.com/threads/mixed-threats-14-04-05-2018.82928/#post-733567 SEPC with default Symantec Policies does detect HEUR.AdvML, even tho there's no such setting as "aggresive" to be set in Policies.

That looks like it could be the advanced machine learning in SEPC in action there based on the AdvML signature perhaps? I noticed the ML hits I got were listed under Insight or Sonar so I am thinking that the ML is integrated into the other modules, working in concert.

I think it's safe to assume SEPC defaults to aggressive and the added ML/AI engines really seem to be busy workers. I'm with Lockjaw though, Norton stuff? Not a chance in hell. Symantec Business stuff? Bring it on.. I can't blame Symantec for putting most focus into their profitable corporate lineup.

SEP is way better than any other symantec products, it has its flaws of course, but once you use it, and set it up properly, it is hard to use anything else.

I'm testing out SEP unmanaged client. It is very lightweight (usually ~20-30MB idle, a bit more with scans, even less if you do nothing) and have a lot of options to configure as you want, especially the firewall component.
It isn't exactly user-friendly, especially if you got a false positive, but if you have free time to set up the client, it is a pretty good security solution.
Right now I'm playing with SONAR agressive and Bloodhound automatic. I will try to learn more about the firewall later on. With SEPM, you can do even more, but right now I don't have the license nor the knowledge to configure it.

SEPC seems to be amazing too, someday I'll get the trial.
I would also chose SEP unmanaged client over SEPC, you just need to play around with settings, also it's Symantec product with all it's latest protection technologies for free and you don't necessarily need Manager. SEPC web dashboard has almost no settings/policies to set and it's quite boring, but it's great to set it up for your family PC's and is full cloud.
