Attention Customers of Symantec Endpoint Protection Small Business Edition (SEP SBE) and Symantec Endpoint Protection Cloud (SEP Cloud)

These products will be discontinued on November 2, 2020. On this date, the product will stop protecting the endpoints, and access to the console no longer will be available. We recommend that customers migrate to Symantec Endpoint Security Enterprise.

For more information, see Transitioning to Symantec Endpoint Security Enterprise Guide.

In specific environments you may need to manage endpoint clients using Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager (SEPM), instead of using the standard Management Console for Symantec Endpoint Protection Small Business Edition (SEP SBE).

This article describes how to download the On-Premises version of SEP SBE, install SEPM, and then deploy or install SEP SBE clients.
