SEP self managed vs centrally managed
My company currently has licenses and is considering deploying SEP 11 client to all of out machines. We currently have Symantec Antivirus 10 that is entriely server managed.
Is there anything wrong with having technicians go around and install the clients all as self-managed, configure the settings they want for updates and scans, and then leave them as unmanaged and never even install a server client?
Or is having a management server that downloads all the updates and distributes them to clients and can command all managed clients really a much better option?
Also, if I setup a client as managed, will I still be able to do scans manually on those clients and pull updates from Symantec manually should I so choose?
