After upgrading to Java 7 Update 51 you are no longer able to launch the remote Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager Console.
You receive an an application error: "Unable to launch the application."
Name: Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager
Publisher: Symantec Corporation
Location: http://sepm.domain.local:9090 (The URL will vary depending on what machine SEPM is installed on.)
When you click on "Details", you will see the following error: "Missing required Permissions attribute in main jar: http://sepm.domain.local:9090/clientpkg/scm-ui.jar"
Improved security settings in the Java 7 client prohibit you from launching the Java application.
Proceed to the Windows Control Panel, and click on "Java"
Click on "Security"
Click on "Edit Site List..."
Click on "Add" and add the location, for example: "http://sepm.domain.local:9090" (the URL needs to match the URL displayed in the error)
Click on "Continue" when you receive a warning about including an HTTP location
Click on "OK"
Click on "OK" again
At this point you can try launching the Remote Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager console again.

" Files behind the Exception Site List
Update Jan 22: The Exception Site List is intended for end-users to create their own whitelist. If you are a System Administrator managing this across many machines, you will find the Deployment Rule Set much easier. Group Policy efforts are better used behind distributing a Deployment Rule Set. You can self-sign a DRS.
The Exception Site List is aimed towards end-users controlling their own Exception Site List.
The file controlling the Exception Site List is stored in the user’s deployment location as described in the deployment configuration. On my Windows 7 laptop, this location is C:\Users\ecostlow\AppData\LocalLow\Sun\Java\Deployment\security\exception.sites
The format is one site per line."
