About enabling features in the Symantec Endpoint Encryption Client installation package

Note: The Symantec Endpoint Encryption Client installation package always installs Management Agent. If you choose to include the Drive Encryption feature in the Symantec Endpoint Encryption Client installation package, the package also installs the Symantec Endpoint Encryption Client Administrator Console and the Administrator Command Line without any additional policy configuration.
