You can configure the actions that you want to take when new definitions arrive on Symantec Endpoint Protection client computers. By default, the client rescans items in the Quarantine and automatically repairs and restores items silently. If you created an exception for a file or application in the Quarantine, Symantec Endpoint Protection restores the file after new definitions arrive.
In addition, you can configure clients to automatically submit quarantined items to a Central Quarantine Server. You use this central repository to add the threat samples that you detect in your environment. You can use that information to set up "red team" attacks to strengthen your security.
Version 14 does not include the Quarantine Server and Quarantine Console. You can install these tools from the installation disc in an earlier version.
To configure how Windows clients handle quarantined items
In the console, open a Virus and Spyware Protection policy and click Quarantine.
On the General tab, under When New Virus Definitions Arrive, click one of the options.
To submit quarantined items to the Central Quarantine Server, check Allow client computers to automatically submit quarantined items to a Quarantine Server, and specific the server name and port number.
