You may be thinking; ‘Citrix Synergy was months ago and I’ve already read all the blogs on what was announced’ and it for this reason I was in two minds when writing this blog.

Oracle is the backend for Symantec Data Loss Prevention (DLP). Oracle 11g has been the database provider for DLP since 2013 for DLP version 12.0. On 18th December 2018, Symantec released a tech note (Support for Oracle 12c SE2 with Symantec Data Loss Prevention 15 and steps for upgrading) detailing the end of life of Oracle 11g. Oracle 11g will no longer be supported as of 25 September 2018.
One of the strengths of Symantec Endpoint Protection (SEP) has been the simplicity of the SEP client. Since Version 11, the SEP client has provided antivirus, firewall, intrusion prevention, application and device control, application whitelisting and more. This is an extremely effective combination of technologies that help to keep your endpoints secure.
