We are interested in purchasing licenses for a project in Monrovia, Liberia in West Africa.  9 of the computers are in one location and connected to a network the 10th computer is in a different location and may be a stand-alone computer.   What is the best way for them to get the software and download the codes needed to install the software?  9 of the computers will need the Symantec protection suite small business edition and the 10th computer the end-point protection license.   Is it possible for them to do everything over the Internet?  Can you help me in identifying what we need and how to purchase?

Thanks!

Many small businesses lack data security and data recovery systems because of a lack of funds or technical knowledge. If this Protection system is affordable, then I do not see a reason why small businesses should not get it.
