SCRIPT:

Welcome to a walk-through of the Symantec Endpoint Protection Small Business Edition Set Up Wizard.

 In this video, you'll see:

* How to activate your license and enter account information.

* The deployment options for the cloud...

…and...

* How to download the On-premises version of Symantec Endpoint Protection Small Business Edition.

When you sign-up for a Symantec.cloud account, you receive a welcome email. It has a link to the Symantec.cloud management console as well as your serial number for Symantec Endpoint Protection Small Business Edition.

Your service is activated when you enter your serial number.

If you want to add the license to an existing account, click Sign In, RATHER THAN Create Account.

For a new account, click Create Account.

This directs you to an account set up form...

The email information that you enter becomes the login for the Account Administrator for the Symantec.cloud account.

The Account Administrator account is used to add licenses and additional services. 

When you agree to the terms and conditions...

…you are automatically logged into your new account and the Symantec Endpoint Protection Small Business Edition wizard opens.

You have a choice of the Cloud version of Endpoint Protection...

…or the on-premises version.  

With the cloud version, you do not need any special hardware because management is done in the cloud. 

Your Windows computers set up quickly, USB storage devices can be controlled, and the service can be managed from anywhere.

With the On-Premises version, you manage your endpoints through a locally-deployed management server.

The On-Premises version supports Windows as well as Mac OS-X.

The first of the cloud deployment options is…

Install on this computer now...

This selection installs the Cloud Endpoint Protection Agent onto the computer that you are using…

The next Cloud option is to send out invitations to multiple users…

The Send email invites option allows you to invite your endpoint users to install the Protection Agent themselves.

The last Cloud deployment option is the Advanced download….

Use the Advanced download option when you intend to distribute agents to the computers on your network using Active Directory or some other software distribution tool, like Altris.

The final option in the setup Wizard is the local version of Symantec Endpoint Protection, Small Business Edition…

With the On-Premises version you set up a management server on your network and deploy and configure your endpoints from the management server.

…you must agree to the terms and conditions to start the download process…

Once on the File Connect site, pick the language that you need...

…select the software that you need to download and click Download Selected Files to start the download.

The download Manager requires Java to run.

If you do not already have it installed, you must install it.

This video showed you...

* How to activate your license and enter account information.

* The deployment options available for the cloud...

…and...

* How to download the On-premises version of Symantec Endpoint Protection...

This concludes our look at the Symantec Endpoint Protection Small Business Edition set up wizard.

Thanks for watching….
