Prepare for installation of security software

As well as ensuring that computers meet the general system requirements, you must perform further steps before you can install software on them automatically.

Note: Automatic installation is not possible on Mac, Linux and UNIX computers.

If you use Active Directory, you can prepare your computers using a Group Policy Object (GPO). If you use workgroups, you must configure computers locally.
