Issue/Introduction

You want to know if you can roll out the DLP Endpoint Agent via the DLP product to a mass/large environment.

Resolution

You cannot do a mass/large rollout installation from the DLP product, for mass installation using a Symantec tool you may use the Symantec Management Console (SMC) which is an Altiris component.

The DLP Agent is already packaged with the Altiris Management Agent for installation rollout and management.

Please read your Installation Guide for more details and also the documentation about Symantec Management Console.
