SAVFL mean Symantec Antivirus for Linux. SAV for Linux is designed as a stand-alone product.

SEP is for Window OS and Mac system. It can be manage the sep clients and applied the policy.

SAVF is notbe a managable condition but you can able to download the Report of Linux from SEPM with SAVFL.

SAVFL is a standalone installation. SEP is require to manage

Where to get installer for these?

I have checked both of the client setup (AV for Linux and SEP client) is available in file connect.

It's worth noting that "SEP for Linux" is finally coming when SEP 12.1 RU5 ships sometime in the next few months.

Recommend you speak with your Symantec Account Manager, and request access to the current RU5 beta program.
