You can use Symantec Endpoint Protection version 11.0 or later with Backup Exec to provide extra security when the threat of viruses or malware is high. You can configure Backup Exec to automatically run a backup job when the Symantec ThreatCon reaches a level that you specify.
The media server must be connected to the Internet to monitor the ThreatCon level. If the media server is not connected to the Internet, backup jobs are not triggered when the ThreatCon level elevates.
The ThreatCon level is updated frequently and can be raised at any time without warning. If you configure large or resource-intensive jobs to launch automatically, they may interfere with your normal business operations.
