Businesses have to be extra careful with their computer security. Symantec Endpoint Protection was created specifically for business users to provide antivirus, antispyware and firewall protection to all clients on the network. When installing the program on a computer, the manager can decide to set the protection as "managed". Uninstalling and reinstalling the program just to change this setting is time-consuming. Use the SylinkDrop tool located on your installation CD to change the protection settings.
