Today, Symantec released Symantec Endpoint Protection 12.1.6, which integrates the existing features currently in Symantec Endpoint Protection for Windows XP Embedded 5.1. This release continues the positive momentum of Symantec Endpoint Protection 12.1- Unrivaled Security, Blazing Performance, and Smarter Management.
With this latest release, Symantec Endpoint Protection 12.1 now has features specific to the embedded platform. This change removes the need for the separate Symantec Endpoint Protection for Windows Embedded 5.1 offering. Symantec will cease selling Symantec Endpoint Protection for Windows XP Embedded today, June 1, 2015. The technical support services of the old 5.1 product will close on October 15, 2016. There is no direct migration between Symantec Endpoint Protection 12.1 and the Symantec Endpoint Protection for Windows XP Embedded 5.1. We encourage customers who have embedded systems in their environments to upgrade to this latest version.
