Symantec Endpoint Protection Mobile (SEP Mobile) runs in the background by utilizing approved Apple APIs.

When the user changes environment (such as by connecting to a Wi-Fi or cellular network), SEP Mobile seamlessly probes the network and identifies threats on the device by leveraging patent-pending, on-device logic along with the Crowd Wisdom Engine. The app does not timeout, and operates in the background with a tiny footprint regardless of whether the device is using another app or is idle.
