We had multiple issues with SEP. This AV brought down mutiple networks including servers. We ended up using the cleanwipe to fully remove this product from our servers and clients. The servers were the ones that were causing the long delays in boot time and hanging of the clients and servers. Though we did experience very slow boot times without the SEP on the servers.
