What are computer and user modes? How do they each effect policy applications?


Policies in the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager (SEPM) can be applied to users or computers organized together or separately into groups. When a Symantec Endpoint Protection (SEP) client connects to the Manager it can provide user and computer information for the purposes of identifying itself. In addition, if there exists a match for both the user and the computer in the Manager, then the client's preference configuration will determine which setting is applied.
