Issue/Introduction

Important Note: Symantec Encryption Products are now fully automatic starting with SEE 11.3.0MP1 and PGP 10.4.2!  This means that when you upgrade Windows 10 using the "Feature Update" (aka Major upgrade such as 1909 to 21H1), this is done automatically done and no further action is needed.

 

If you would like to deploy Windows 10 either through Altiris, or other deployment solutions, we have some additional steps to use, but still easy to perform.
