Install Now:

This option provides a single use executable file called SymantecExtractor.exe which will install the client on the machine used to log in to the manager. This download option is great for small business environments that are not spread out.


Send Email Invites:

Emailing download invites is a great option for getting protection installed on remote machines or office locations. It would be best to limit the amount of installations run at one time as the installation files download when it is run.

The users will receive an email shortly after the “Send Email Invites” button is clicked.


Download a Redistributable Package:

When the package creator is complete the Symredistributable.exe is created, which is the file used to install Symantec Cloud.

The Redistributable option can be used in larger environments to install multiple machines, also Group Policy deployments can be used to install Symantec Cloud with this option.
