Symantec Endpoint and Windows 7 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Has anybody tried Endpoint protection with Windows 7 and if so has it worked for you?  I don't see Windows 7 listed on any of their endpoint web pages as a system requirement.  I hope they do make it compatible with Windows 7

  • Thanks for the response and the Answers.  I'm trying out the RTM free version right now and it looks good. I think I'm going to like Windows 7.  I guess I'll have to wait on Symantec to patch Endpoint and until then I'll use Avast "cough..choke" free.

    I'm anxious to make the switch. Vista was not the answer for me.  Just to much of a hassle for a home network or small office work-group setting.  I would still like to see a basic user/network or group profile counsol where you would go and answer a few basic questions and Windows 7 would set your security permissions for you.  Such as if you are all peers and you want open sharing then just click a radio button and you basically have sharing just like XP has. I can't see the need to security in a home network or even in a multi-computer work environment like I do with my web design work where I'm running 5 to 7 computers at the same time.

    Again, Thanks for the response.
