Do I need to create users in Endpoint Protection Cloud?
Last Updated April 10, 2019
Symantec Endpoint Protection Cloud has the capability of creating users, however, their creation is not mandatory. Regardless of how many users you have, you can still use the software and console normally. This article aims to explain the reasons when and why it would be useful to create users in Symantec Endpoint Protection Cloud.
By creating a user, they will receive an email that will allow them to enroll their own devices. If you would prefer to install Endpoint Protection Cloud through email invites, this is the solution for you because upon receiving the invitation email and registering, end users can easily enroll their devices themselves.
"Users" constitutes a organizational unit within Endpoint Protection Cloud; it can be used to quickly visualize who each device belongs to among others but a user is not a mandatory thing every account needs. How you deploy devices might mean you only have admin users on a particular account.
The add user functionality will allow you to create or delete administrators. By creating more administrator users, it is possible to delegate work to different parties.
Sometimes user assignment helps the admin see more easily that the license count is accurate. Please review article License count is off
Again, because there are various ways to deploy SEPC : package enroll, user enroll, device discovery, connectwise, etc, there might be accounts with only one user out there, and some with hundreds out there and no one is more correct than another. The "user" is nothing more than a organization unit that you can utilize or not, based on your needs and organization preferences or based on how you will deploy the software.
