A vShield-enabled Shared Insight Cache runs in a Symantec Endpoint Protection Security Virtual Appliance. You must install the appliance so that Windows-based Guest Virtual Machines (GVMs) can use VMware vShield Endpoint to access the Shared Insight Cache.
Symantec supports the use of the Security Virtual Appliance only in VMware ESX/ESXi infrastructures.
