If you install Symantec Insight for Private Clouds Endpoint Edition in your network, you must configure Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager (SEPM) to communicate with your private Insight server. The documentation that is provided with Symantec Endpoint Protection (SEP) version 12.1.3 (12.1 RU3) does not provide information on private Insight servers or describe how to configure Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager for this communication.
Note: Symantec Endpoint Protection Small Business Edition does not support private Insight servers.
At the next heartbeat, clients start using the specified server for reputation queries.
Symantec Insight for Private Clouds Endpoint Edition is typically installed in networks without Internet connectivity. The private server stores a copy of Symantec Insight's reputation database in your private cloud. Symantec Endpoint Protection reputation queries are HTTP or HTTPS requests to the private server rather than to Symantec's Insight server.
The private server downloads the Symantec Insight data over an encrypted, secure connection. You can manually update the Insight data or use third-party tools to check for updates and download the data automatically. Your update method depends on your network and the type of server on which you run Symantec Insight for Private Clouds.
When you use a private Insight server, Symantec does not receive any queries or submissions for file reputation.
