This article describes how to install Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager (SEPM), and then deploy, or install, Symantec Endpoint Protection (SEP) clients.
These instructions are limited to a fairly basic first-time installation. They apply to both the Enterprise and Small Business Editions, except for differences noted in configuration and licensing. Some optional steps are left out.
For further information at any point, please consult the product help or the implementation guides:
Installing the SEPM and deploying clients involves the following steps:
SEP is licensed according to the number of SEP clients that are needed to protect the endpoints at your site. Once SEPM is installed, you may immediately deploy clients; you have 60 days to purchase and activate a license that covers all of your deployed clients (30 days in SEP Small Business Edition).
Prepare computers for installing the SEP client deployment by configuring firewalls and communication ports on your servers and workstations, and otherwise prepare operating systems for remote deployment and management of SEP clients.
You may deploy clients via a weblink and email, remote push, or save a package for later local installation or deployment using third-party tools. Only the remote push is described in this section.
