What’s new in SEP 12.1?
Symantec Insight: Symantec Insight is the only system in the world that tracks the age, prevalence and security rating of nearly every program file on the internet. Because Insight knows what files are new or changed, it takes the most important advantage of cyber-criminals - their ability to generate millions of unique threats - and turns it against them. This means that unlike competitor solutions, SEP 12.1 separates files at risk from those that are safe, for faster and more accurate malware detection
