In order to take advantage of the latest available enhancements, improvements and fixes, best practice recommends keeping the patch level of all Symantec Endpoint Protection (SEP) and Symantec Network Access Control (SNAC) clients in the enterprise up-to-date. How can the latest MP (Maintenance Patch) be applied to managed or unmanaged ("self-managed") clients?
Articles with the available patches for SEP and SNAC are listed below. Some important points to note:
It is recommended to always apply the latest-available patch, unless corporate policy or another compelling reason specifies an earlier release.
It is important that the correct patch is downloaded and applied. A patch designed to upgrade a SEP 12.1 RU1 client to the latest available release will not, for instance, succeed when run on a SEP 12.1 RU1 MP1 client.
Note that these client-only patches will not update the management components on a Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager (SEPM).
