QoS for anti virus update traffic?

Just wanted to know if there is the possibility of creating QoS rules for Symantec Endpoint Protection so that when end devices are updating over the network, it doesnt hog the bandwidth.  We are currently QoS'ing for Print and Citrix traffic.  The only info i can find is that it uses TCP but this doesnt help.  I also have the server port number but the destination ports are always different.

Routers have IOS from 12.2 - 15.1 and are 2801 and 881 models.

Any feedback is appreciated

From what you described, you could probably fairly safely identify this traffic as TCP sourced from a particular IP and source port.  With this information, you could deprioritize this traffic relative to other traffic.
