    Hard driveDisk space requirements depend on the type of client you install, which drive you install to, and where the program data file resides. The program data folder is usually on the system drive in the default location C:\ProgramData.
    Available disk space is always required on the system drive, regardless of which installation drive you choose.
    Hard drive system requirements:
    Note:Space requirements are based on NTFS file systems. Additional space is also required for content updates and logs.

    macOS 10.14 (Added for 14.2 MP1)
    Note: If you intend to upgrade to macOS 10.14.5 when it releases, 14.2 MP1 does not support kernel notarization. Review the following document for more information: Endpoint Protection 14.2 RU1 and kext notarization for macOS 10.14.5
    ComponentRequirements
    Hardware
    • Intel Pentium 4 (2 GHz) or later processor
    • 1 GB of RAM
    • 7 GB of available hard disk space
    Operating systemsFor a list of supported operating system kernels, see Supported Linux kernels for Symantec Endpoint Protection.
    Graphical desktop environmentsYou can use the following graphical desktop environments to view the Symantec Endpoint Protection for Linux client:
    • KDE
    • Gnome
    • Unity
    Other environmental requirements
    • Glibc
      Any operating system that runs glibc earlier than 2.6 is not supported.
    • i686-based dependent packages on 64-bit computers
      Many of the executable files in the Linux client are 32-bit programs. For 64-bit computers, you must install the i686-based dependent packages before you install the Linux client. If you have not already installed the i686-based dependent packages, you can install them by command line. This installation requires superuser privileges, which the following commands demonstrate with sudo:
      • For Red Hat-based distributions:
        sudo yum install glibc.i686 libgcc.i686 libX11.i686
      • For Debian-based distributions:
        sudo apt-get install ia32-libs
      • For Ubuntu-based distributions:
        sudo apt-get install libx11-6:i386 libgcc1:i386 libc6:i386
    • net-tools or iproute2
      Symantec Endpoint Protection uses one of these two tools, depending on what is already installed on the computer.
    • XFS file systems that contain inode64 attributes are not supported for 14.2.
    • Developer tools
      Auto-compile and the manual compile process for the Auto-Protect kernel module require that you install certain developer tools. These developer tools include gcc and the kernel source and header files. For details on what to install and how to install them for specific Linux versions, see Manually compile Auto-Protect kernel modules for Endpoint Protection for Linux.

    @Vitali Ortzi The direct download links aren't working. But they do work from the comms.ru web page.
    Thanks for reporting!

    Won't include direct downloads since I'm not sure what are the rules about mirror links.
    Note use google translate if you have l any language barriers.

    I have SEP, used it for about 1 year ,best firewall I ever seen way more options than any other product I have used, I was a little leary after Symantec was sold and put the 3 computers on Kaspersky Total Security. Never had a virus ,but used other program alongside

    Kaspersky is one of my recommendation especially for the low false positives around shady software and one of the fastest reputation .
    Very rarely got 1 day human analysis
    My average time of human analysis in Kaspersky advanced endpoint protection was about 6-8 hours even with non critical shady samples for human analysis .
    and up to minutes for AI based analysis.

    unmanaged is like Norton just without VPN, cleaning utilities, web extension, or any crapware.
    and SEP has better protection and stability since it's built for the business environment.
    yes, you can use it for "home-usage".
    I am not sure about that... In many places ppls was telling symantec was carryed by norton team. Now them are sold to broadcom, so in future will see if those voice was correct, or them can maintein the product at top. For some period norton and symantec will share the tecnologies, later will see.
    About the rest, symantec have a big problem in ram usage with Symantec service framework (around 200 mb).
    If u consider it "free" is certain 1 of the best solutions (at this moment).

    It's the proactive and Auto protect causing high ram and CPU usage made a firewall and exploit mitigation only installation config (for replacing the heavy av component with a lighter one ) to get under 20mb ram and near zero CPU usage by SEP.
