To manage clients with Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager, you must export a managed client installation package, and then install the package files onto client computers. You can deploy the client with either Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager or a third-party deployment tool.
Symantec occasionally provides updated packages of installation files, usually when a new product version releases. You can automatically update the client software on all managed Windows and Mac clients in a group with the AutoUpgrade feature. You do not need to redeploy software with installation deployment tools.
