vShield Endpoint and Symantec

We currently use Symantec Endpoint Protection 11. I am very interested in looking at vShield Endpoint as it would take the per-VM installs and maintenance of the AV out of the picture. Does anyone have any information on what Symantec has in process for vShield Endpoint, or when something from Symantec will be available? It seems like Trend Micro has the only actualy product available at this point.

Symantec doesn't have anything yet, but it is hoped that they will release something in 2011. It would be best to talk to your Symantec team about this and let them know how important it is to you.
