Update 3 March 2017:

We have changed our policy for platform support for Symantec Encryption Desktop for FileVault. 
Symantec will explicitly certify Mac OS X new major versions or minor versions (like version 11.0 or 10.12) and then not certify the follow-on versions.  

For example, our System Requirements list posted at now notes support of Mac OS X 10.12.x.  
Our next certification will be for Mac OS X 10.13.
