    For years I have been using and renewing Endpoint Protection for my Small Business Server.

    For the last 2 years Symantec has made available SEP for Small Business.

    Is there a difference in the 2 products?

    Should change my product come renewal time this May and switch to SEP for Small Busiiness.?

    Have Win 2003 SBS SP2 and 5 workstations.

     

    Thanks

    I would suggest you using Small Business edition since your environment is not big

    Another great product for small business is the Endpoint Protection.cloud product. There is no need for you to manage and maintain a server on site, as the manager is hosted in the cloud. There is a free 30 day trial to test drive the product, check this link for more details.

    What is the difference between SEP SBE 12.0 and SEP 11.0?

    • SEP SBE 12.0 is a product optimized for Small Business (<=100 nodes) customers.
    • It is much easier to install and use.
    • SEP SBE has all the features of SEP 11.0 except for Application and Device Control. It also does not support NAC.
    • With the introduction of SEP SBE 12.0, Symantec now has targeted offerings based on customer segment.
    • If you have more than 100 users, we would recommend SEP.
    • If you have less than 100 users, SEP SBE is the better fit.

     

    Can I install SEP SBE 12 over SEP 11?

    SEP SBE 12.0 clients can be installed over SAV 9.x or later, SCS 3.x, or previous SEP 11.x installs.

     

    Can I migrate SEP Manager from the SEP 11 Management Console?

    • A customer that has SEP 11.0 deployed will have to uninstall the manager and then install the SEP SBE 12.0 manager.
    • The SEP SEB 12.0 manager can simply be used to push out the client software to upgrade SEP 11.0 clients to SEP SBE 12.0 client.
    • Existing policies can be migrated.

     

    AND YES.. IF NOT MISTAKEN... Symantec Endpoint Protection Small Business Edition 12.0 is CHEAPER. :)
