    • 1. MODULE 20: INTERFACING THE SEPM WITH PROTECTION CENTER 1
    • 2. DESCRIBING PROTECTION CENTER Protection Center lets you manage Symantec Endpoint Protection together with other Symantec products in a single environment. Symantec Endpoint Protection is integrated with Protection Center by means of a series of Web services. These Web services provide communication between the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager server and the Protection Center server. 2
    • 3. DESCRIBING PROTECTION CENTER Run the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager console from Protection Center together with other Symantec product consoles. The Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager console in Protection Center is almost identical to the standalone console. The main function options that appear to the left of the console window in the standalone version, however, appear at the top in Protection Center. 3
    • 4. DESCRIBING PROTECTION CENTER Run the reports that contain data from Symantec Endpoint Protection and from other products, such as Symantec Messaging Gateway. The data feed Web services define the Symantec Endpoint Protection data that is written to the Protection Center database. 4
    • 5. DESCRIBING PROTECTION CENTER Initiate the Protection Center workflows that include Symantec Endpoint Protection tasks. Protection Center provides the following Symantec Endpoint Protection workflows: ■ Quarantine Endpoint Workflow ■ Move Endpoint Workflow ■ Update Virus Definitions on Endpoint Workflow ■ Update Virus Definitions and Scan Endpoint Workflow 5
    • 6. DESCRIBING THE PROTECTION CENTER APPLIANCE Protection Center can be deployed as a virtual or a physical appliance. The appliance type that you choose depends on the number of nodes in your network and your preferences. 6
    • 7. DESCRIBING THE PROTECTION CENTER APPLIANCE A virtual appliance is a good option if all of the following are true: ■ You already use VMware ESX. ■ You can make sufficient hardware resources available for the appliance in your VMware ESX environment. 7
    • 8. DESCRIBING THE PROTECTION CENTER APPLIANCE A physical appliance is a good option if any of the following is true: ■ You want a standalone appliance. ■ You cannot make sufficient hardware resources available for the appliance in your VMware ESX environment. 8
    • 9. DESCRIBING THE PROTECTION CENTER APPLIANCE Protection Center can be deployed as a virtual or a physical appliance. To create a Protection Center virtual appliance, you create a virtual machine and have it mount the Protection Center Appliance Creator ISO. To create a Protection Center physical appliance, you boot your server with the Protection Center Appliance Creator DVD. When you create and deploy a virtual or a physical appliance, the appliance creation process installs Windows and other required software. 9
    • 10. CONFIGURING PROTECTION CENTER You set up Symantec Endpoint Protection in Protection Center by performing the following tasks: ■ Add the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager server to Protection Center, and enable the server. ■ Create Protection Center accounts to access Symantec Endpoint Protection and your other integrated products. ■ Map the Protection Center accounts to the appropriate accounts in Symantec Endpoint Protection and your other integrated products. 10
    • 11. CONFIGURING PROTECTION CENTER You must set up multiple domains individually. If your Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager includes only the default domain, you do not need to specify any domain information in Protection Center. Protection Center can automatically discover the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager servers in your network. This network discovery is enabled in Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager by default. If you disabled it, you can add Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager manually. 11
    • 12. CONFIGURING PROTECTION CENTER To manage multiple Symantec Endpoint Protection domains in Protection Center, you must add each domain to Protection Center separately. You must specify the domain as part of the user name, in the form <domain_name>account_name. 12
    • 13. CONFIGURING PROTECTION CENTER When you configure Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager, you configure ports for your entire system. You can use the default ports, or you can specify custom ports. When you add multiple domains in Protection Center, you must specify these ports for each domain that you add. The port numbers are the same, but Protection Center requires that you provide them for each domain. 13
    • 14. USING PROTECTION CENTER Protection Center control panel options The Protection Center control panel is the user interface of the Protection Center appliance that is equivalent to the desktop of a Windows computer. The control panel lets you perform some essential configuration tasks. Some of the tasks that you can perform through the control panel are also available in the Protection Center interface. For example, you can update the appliance software, change the administrator password, and specify the appliance network settings in both locations. However, tasks such as activating Windows can only be performed through the control panel. 14
    • 15. USING PROTECTION CENTER Accessing the Protection Center control panel The Protection Center control panel is the appliance user interface that is equivalent to the desktop of a Windows computer. Before you can access the control panel, you need to connect a monitor directly to the Protection Center appliance. Alternatively, you can use a virtual console if one is provided within your virtual environment. 15
