Implementing Endpoint encryption

Created: 25 Nov 2012 • Updated: 26 Nov 2012 | 10 comments

Our company is looking into your product to install to our customers and will like some information.

Is the product endpoint encryption installable on a PC or a AD server? If it is both, can you tell me the advantages and disadvantages of each one and which you will recommend?

Also can you direct me to the system requirements of installing Endpoint encryption.

Thank you.

Thank you very much Ashish.

As I am a beginner about systems and I have to somehow quickly understand this product, my understanding is that an Active Directory domain controller and Management Server are required.

Also if I would like to use the trialware to test Endpoint encryptions, will I be able to install in a server and physical PC?

Thank you.

You need a server for the management as well as a DB. The DB can be installed on a separate server if you wish or simply installed on the same server. Keeping the DB separate is recommended for performance but not required. Once you get the server built and installed, you can than begin deploying to your clients.

Yes, you can install trialware on a server.

Thank you very much Brian.

So can you clarify for a newbie  like me...sorry.

So the Endpoint Encryption will not work only by itself installed into a PC. It will require Endpoint Encryption Management Server to be installed into the server to work. Is this right?

So, there is no step by step guide on how to install the endpoint encryption onto a AD server and a step to step guide on how not to install onto a AD server but just a PC?
 

Can you please clarify if my understanding is correct.

Thank you.

You would need to take a look at the documentation, which can all be found here:

How many users are you talking about? I believe that this product needs server class hardware to run per the system requirements here:

So only clients can get the encryption software while a server is needed to run the management piece.

Thank you for clearing that up, Brian.

One more question. Can the Symantic Endpoint Protection small business software and the endpoint encryption software be installed onto the same server?

Thank you.

Do you mean the clients or the management piece?

The clients can, yes. But the management should be on separate servers..

Thank you again, Brian.

Will you have documents on that why the management can't be on the same server?

I need it to backup your answer....

Thank you.

I don't have documentation, just word of mouth from Symantec/consultant when working on the project. Sorry.
