Managing administrator accounts

You can use administrator accounts to manage Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager datacenters. Administrators log on to Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager to change policy settings, manage groups, run reports, and install client software, as well as other management tasks.

The default account is a system administrator account, which provides access to all features. You can also add a more limited administrator account, for administrators who need to perform a subset of tasks.

For a small company, you may only need one administrator. For a large company, you most likely need multiple administrators, some of whom have more access rights than others.

You manage administrator accounts and their passwords on the Admin page.
