Symantec Endpoint Protection Support Tool

I’m currently busy with integrating the Symantec Endpoint Protection software into a Windows 7 build for one of our customers. I wondered if the Security team had really provided me with the latest and greatest version and ended up searching for that information on the Symantec web site where I came across a post mentioning the Symantec Endpoint Protection Support Tool.

For those that have a SEP 11 version prior RU5 the tool can be downloaded from here and as of RU5 (11.0.5002.333) the tool can also be downloaded from within the Symantec Endpoint Protection client by opening the Client user interface and selecting Help & Support > Download Support Tool.

imageThe tool provides much more information than just the current version, so if you are a Security Professional (then you probably know this tool already) or an IT Pro this is a must have for SEP troubleshooting or information gathering.
