Issue/Introduction

Setting a password for the Symantec Endpoint Security (SES) client allows you to require a password to open the client user interface, uninstall the client, stop the services, or import/export a policy.

Environment

SES

Resolution

To set a password for the SES client, open the System policy in the SES Portal (ICDM) and the settings are located at the bottom of the policy. Enable the options you'd like to use the password for and set the password. After saving the policy the clients should pick this up promptly if there are no communications issues. You can right-click on a clients icon in the System Tray if you'd like to force a client to check for policies by choosing the Update Policy option.
