Updating Symantec Enpoint Protection's Proactive Threat Protection Without an Internet Connection

I occasionally come across computers that will never be connected to the internet but are still vulnerable to viruses through other sources (ex. thumb drives, software installs, etc).

What I need is a solution where I can drop the updates on the machines, or connect to them directly (via x-over cable) to download the updates locally.

Is this possible?

If it is...

How would I go about setting this up?

Is this option a viable long-term option?

Are these clients managed using a SEPM? Do they have a network connection? What version of SEP including updates?

You can always download teh latest definitions to a USB drive or other media and sneakernet them to the system. I know there was a discussion around a tool to do this but cannot find reference to Symantec relasing one

I believe Symantec may now require a license to download definitions for some versions
