Resolution

Yes - the Symantec Endpoint Protection (SEP) product can scan the boot sector of both fixed disks and mounted drives.

The option is located under Auto-Protect - Advanced - Floppies - check floppies for boot viruses when accessed, and applies to all volumes. With the option turned on, Auto-Protect will scan the volume upon receiving a filesystem mount notification.
