Endpoint Encryption Endpoint Protection


A common issue for Symantec Customers is submitting a case for products that may be similar in naming convention, but are different security solutions, such as Symantec Endpoint Protection (SEP) VS Symantec Endpoint Encryption, which can be confusing to know how to log the support case. 

To ensure you log the case in the proper queue and avoid potential delays, this article will provide some guidance on how to log Symantec Security products.


Prerequisites before you can log a support case through the portal:

*Create a Support Account at the online portal.  Go to, click "Login" on the top-right of the screen and either login or register.
Once you create your Broadcom support account, you will need your Site ID for the product you need help with.

*Associate your Site ID for your support contract with your account.  Once you have created your account and have a Site ID for your contract, associate that to your support account. 
See the following article for information on this, either obtaining the SiteID or adding it to your account:
