A REST API enhancement lets you copy over settings in the General Settings policy to other groups. If you do not have inheritance for groups enabled, you can use the API call to change settings for multiple groups. For example, you can set the heartbeat and download randomization values, enable Tamper Protection, and configure Server control options.
External Logging adds a new Syslog entry containing PII filtered policy changes. This change adds a second log line containing the policy payload when a policy change is made and recorded in the Audit log.
External Logging forwards information about the type of scan to Syslog servers. This information includes whether the scan was a full scan or active scan and a manual or scheduled scan. This change adds a new SCAN_TYPE column in External Logging for scan events. You can use this information to track regularly scheduled scans on your client computers.
The Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager Administrative Log displays the administrator’s user name and the source and destination group names after a client moves from one group to another.

- Integration with Anti-malware Scan Interface (AMSI).
- Enhanced support for web applications with WSS PAC file redirection allows administrators to customize the proxy auto configuration file hosted by WSS Local Proxy Service.
